Re: copying URLs

Hi Pablo,

I have been a Window-Eyes user for years.  When I started using Jaws, I noticed that unlike Window-Eyes, I was not directly on the link just by moving to the row that said link.  Before pressing the context menu, try pressing the up arrow key and then tab to the link.  Now, the link will be highlighted and you should be able to find the copy command with the applications/context key.

Well, I have chrome and Internet explorer last releases. I don’t have none of those choices. Maybe I need to enable it?

  • In Chrome for PC, the option is: Copy Link Address
  • In Internet Explorer for PC, the option is: Copy Shortcut
  • In Firefox for PC (I’m using ESR), the option is: Copy Link Location

 

It’s standard to all browsers.

You can do this in the Windows Application Menu.

 

1. Focus on the link with your virtual cursor

2. Open the Windows Application Menu with WINDOWS APPLICATION KEY or SHIFT-F10

3. Activate “Copy Link Location”

 

The link address is copied to your clipboard.

Hi all,

I am looking for a way to do the following.

  • I need to copy the URL address of several links.
  • I need to be able that when the virtual cursor is over a link, then use the application key, and be able to select a choice that copy the URL for that link
  • After the URL is copied in the clipboard, I will be able to paste it to a document.

I am looking if out there is an  AD for chrome, firefox, or Internet explorer that allow me to do that. I know that opening the link and pressing alt D I will be able to copy the URL, but it is a very inefficient way to do that because it is so much to do just to copy an URL.

Any idea guys?
