Hi Tom,
 
Make sure your virtual cursor is turned on, Insert + Z, is the toggle keystroke.

Mike and all:

 

I was able to follow your instructions for specifying how to copy content from web pages in Firefox, but could not find the virtual cursor options in the Jaws quick settings to make the change in Google Chrome.

 

Here are the steps I used, as copied from yesterday’s e-mails:

 

1. Open your web browser of choice.

 

2. Press, Insert + V, to open Jaws Quick Settings.

 

3. Press the down arrow key to find the option for select and copy. This is found under the virtual cursor options.

 

4. When you find the select and copy option, you can press the tab key to move to the help window. Use the say all command to read the help
information for the select and copy option.

 

5. Use, Shift + Tab, to move back to the tree view. Press the space bar to toggle the Select and Copy options.  Your options are, From virtual cursor,
and, Full content using on screen highlight.  Repeated pressing of the spacebar enables you to alternate between the two choices. When you hear the one you want, stop pressing the spacebar and go to the next step.

 

6. Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.

 

Can anyone tell me why the virtual cursor options don’t seem to be available in Google Chrome?

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2020 on a Dell Windows 10 laptop here.

 

Thanks!

Hi Sharon,

 

When making this settings change in a browser and using the Jaws quick settings feature, this should only effect the way text is copied while on the internet using this particular browser.  Each browser needs to be set-up individually using the same steps.

 

Making this settings change in a browser shouldn't change the way text is copied from a program like Word, but should only effect the way text is pasted into a program like Word since only the text is copied and then pasted.

 

Whenever you use the Jaws quick settings feature, Insert + V, while in any application this settings change is application specific to only this application and should not effect any others.

It’s interesting.

I went into google and changed to virtual view.

Now all of a sudden, all my issues with copying, cutting, and deleting text in a web browser and in Word went away.

This setting seems to work on all programs; is this correct?

I’m using Jaws 2020 and Windows 10 latest update.

 

Using Jaws 2018, copy, cut, and delete seemed to work, without my changing any setting.

But in 2020 the other setting does not work at all, but virtual viewer does.

This seems to have solved many issues with cutting, copying and deleting text.

Mike is saying that repeated pressing of the spacebar enables you to alternate between the two choices. When you hear the one you want, stop pressing the spacebar and go to the next step.

Mike:

 

These instructions are quite useful, and I’ll save them for future reference.

 

However, I do have one question:

 

Here is what you said in step 5:

 

5. “Use, Shift + Tab, to move back to the tree view. Press the space bar to toggle the Select and Copy options.  Your options are, From virtual cursor,
and, Full content using on screen highlight.
Stop on the, From virtual cursor, option.”

 

Let’s say I choose “full content using on screen highlight”.

 

I’m not sure what you mean by your next statement that says:  “stop on the virtual cursor option”.

 

Can you clarify?

 

Thank you.

 

Tom Behler

Hi Clarence and Abraham,

 

Here's a setting that you might want to switch to in Jaws quick settings if you haven't already.

 

Note, just to clarify:  If you choose the, From Virtual Cursor option, this will copy the text without formatting.
If you choose the, Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight  option, this copies the text with formatting. 
 
 
You can change this option in Jaws Quick Settings, Insert + V, while in your browser.

 

To make the change, do the following:
1. Open your web browser of choice.
2. Press, Insert + V, to open Jaws Quick Settings.
3. Press the down arrow key to find the option for select and copy. This is found under the virtual cursor options.

 

4. When you find the select and copy option, you can press the tab key to move to the help window. Use the say all command to read the help
information for the select and copy option.
5. Use, Shift + Tab, to move back to the tree view. Press the space bar to toggle the Select and Copy options.  Your options are, From virtual cursor,
and, Full content using on screen highlight.
Stop on the, From virtual cursor, option.
 
6. Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

I think I will give them a call. If they have a fix, maybe they might share it.

 

Thanks Again.

I run into the same problem with both chrome and Firefox.

When I contact freedom scientific support and they  tandem into my computer, it starts working all of a sudden.

 

 

Thanks,abraham

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.
