jaws19 and copying text

Don Mauck

You might try going to the speech history, (insert+spacebar then the letter “h”. Then you can find the text you want and copy that to the clip board.

Subject: jaws19 and copying tekst



I would copy tekst from a webpage that can’t be selected with the cursor.


In Apple voiceover, tehere is a very usefull function for such situations: copying the last spoken blok of tekst tot he clipboard.

In jaws I can’t find this at the moment.\

Is there a script , other function or workaround to copy tekst tot he clipboard that isn’t reachable with the cursor?

Kind regards,



Met vriendelijke groeten
