I’m using JAWS version 18 and trying to copy info from word document and paste into gmail email. However, it will not paste. Is this a JAWS issue or browser issue? I’m using internet browser. When I paste the info, it enters symbols but says something about scripts.
Also, is there a typing tutor built into JAWS?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, Lynda. You said you are using Internet Browser. Do you mean Internet Explorer? Also, are you using an email client like Outlook 2013 to compose your Gmail, or are you trying to use the Gmail website? If you are using the website, do you have your gmail account set to basic html or are you using Standard settings?

This is information that would be helpful for us to know before we can determine why you are unable to copy text from a Word document to your email which you are editing.

Hi again Lynda. May I suggest the following:

1. Hold down the JAWS key and press V for Quick Settings while in Internet Explorer.
2. In the search, type Virtual Cursor.
3. When you open Virtual Cursor, arrow down to the third option.
Make sure it says:
Select and CopyFrom Virtual Cursor

Make sure it does not say:

Full content using onscreen highlight

4. If it says:

Full content using onscreen highlight

Press the Space Bar until it says:

Select and CopyFrom Virtual Cursor

5. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

if the

Full content using onscreen highlight

is selected, it will try to copy not only the text, but the format as well into your email. You only want the text to be copied. Otherwise, I have found the paste option not to work correctly in some cases.

Thank you so much. I’ll try this . I assume this is setting and I wouldn’t have to do this each time?

Lynda, there isn't a typing tutorial built into JAWS (you'd have to get
a program for a typing tutorial), but it does have a feature that will
allow you to explore the keyboard so you can get familiar where keys on
the keyboard are located. you can enable this feature by pressing
insert+1 , that's the 1 above the letters. notice that pressing
combinations of keys, like control+a, announces what that combination
does. if you press the a twice while holding the control down, JAWS will
give you a more detailed description of what the combination does. this
also applies to JAWS specific combinations like insert+page down, as
well as (I think) Windows combinations.

when you're done exploring the keyboard, just press insert+1 to disable
"keyboard help".

BTW, NVDA has the same feature using the same insert+1 to enable and
disable the feature.
