I was experiencing the same behavior in Chrome, Edge, and Word.

Yes, I have had the same experience on certain websites, such as the online Guardian newspaper. The virtual copy option in JAWS quick settings doesn’t solve it. It requires a workaround, as follows.
My default browser is Chrome. When I’m unable to copy something from a website, I either switch to IE11 or close JAWS 2020 and open JAWS 2018, which can copy text in these situations. One reason to keep old versions of JAWS on the system.
I haven’t started using Edge, so I can’t speak for that browser.
I have found some occassions where JAWS will not allow me to copy portions of a web page.
What happens is I select what I want to copy, or I think that I do, then I attempt to copy it.
Even though I selected what I want to copy, it will not copy it. This does not happen all of the time but it is enough to be annoying.
