Hi Jed,


Another option, if you have JAWS 16 or later, is to use speech history. Press Insert + Space, then H and you get the last 50 things JAWS said in the virtual viewer, from where you can select and copy what you need. Then Escape to close the virtual viewer. It's a really handy feature.

Hi Jed,


You can virtualize the window using the keystroke Insert / Jaws key, Alt, + W, then press, Control + A to select all the text, then press, Control + C, to copy / paste the text to the clipboard  Now press, escape to get out of / close the virtual window and press, Control + V, to paste the text into a text file or message.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

So i need to copy the error to send to some people for review.  The
only way i can review it is with the jaws cursor.  Is there any way i
