Moderated Re: copying and pasting a column from a webpage into notepad
I have used 2 metods:
My favorite method
Copied entire table, pasted it into Excel and selected the column in Excel. Word should work too but I havent tried with Word.
If the table is not very big then
Moved to the column
Pressed win+alt+. (period) – JAWS command Read entire column or moved ctrl+alt+arrow keys up or down
Read entire column (win+alt+period) gives everything as a long line. Move by cell (ctrl+alt+up or down arrows) might give extra speech: row 1, row 2 and so on – you might need to adjust JAWS options for clean copy.
And then copied from the speech history
To open speech history: JAWS key+space, h
Speech history is like a webpage

Subject: copying and pasting a column from a webpage into notepad
If I am on a webpage and I wish to select a column of text from within a table,
And then paste it into word or notepad but not as a column in a table,
How do I do this?
Using jaws 2022?
I think the browser is chrome if that helps?
The reason for me doing this is that,
After I paste the column into word or notepad,
I then have constructed an outline of topics and subtopics already set.
Because the topics and subtopics are all located within a particular column.
Please advise as you like.
