moderated copying and pasting a column from a webpage into notepad


mike mcglashon
 

Hi guys:

 

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.

Use two documents, and then paste the material into the first document, then copy and paste it into your outline.

Okay but,

How do I select an entire column from a webpage table to paste to begin with?

Are you familiar with placemarkers? Set a placemarker at the beginning of the column with control-windows key-k. locate the end of the column and press JAWS key-spacebar followed by m to complete the selection. Then press control-c to copy and proceed from there.

 

Since we don’t have the document, I can’t be sure that only that column will be selected. You may need to copy the entire document into a new file and play with it. But the placemarkers will ultimately give you what you need.

Hi Adrian:

 

You are absolutely right,

I am familiar with place markers; ( I did as you suggested);

It did in fact copy all the rows of the column I selected.

I did have to go into notepad and paste, then,

Edit out the stuff I did not want.

It took quite a bit of time,

One would think that I could copy simply a column without the rest of the columns in the rows?

 

 

Please advise as you like.

Mike,
Are there table commands for selecting a column in a browser?
In word and other word processors, you can select rows and columns with shift + space or control + space.
In Edge, Jaws can give program specific help with commonly used shortcuts with insert W, but this only seems to be a feature for Jaws with Microsoft products, but what works in Edge will probably work in other browsers.

Oh, I apologize for leaving that out, I thought the pasting into the document part was the main thing.

 

Set the placemarkers as described.

 

Use control windows k to create a temporary placemarker.

Do this at the start of where  you want to select, then navigate down to where the end of your selection is going to be, so to the end of where you want to select. 

 

Use insert spacebar, then the letter m.

 

You should here selecting between marked place and current position.

 

 

Then copy, and paste into your document.

 

 

Thanks,

 

HJustin

Quoting:

End quote:

 

This is exactly what I did, however,

It not only copies the column I want, but,

It also copies the corresponding rows as well.

It can be a nightmare to go back and edit all the unwanted columns out of the pasted data.

So, it does not only copy the contents of one specific column.

 

Not only that,

If I first go into table-layer with insert-space ant T,

And then set a placemarker,

It still copies entire rows, not just the desired column.

 

I will play with it a bit later on as I must go and move out of my old apartment.

Mike,

 

This is a longshot, but I wonder about your virtual cursor options settings in the JAWS quick settings dialog.

 

Press JAWS key-v

The first group that should appear is “virtual cursor options”

Down-arrow to the setting that is either:

 

select and copy full content using screen highlight

or

from virtual cursor

 

It’s a toggle, so either one of these lines will be verbalized.

Whichever one it is, press spacebar to set the alternative and see if that makes a difference when selecting a webpage column.

Indeed.  I constantly say that these issues are very, very difficult to discuss and solve in the abstract.  If it is possible to offer an actual URL so that potential assistants can, literally, be on the same page it should be done.  If it can't, it's helpful to note that the material is not available to the general public.

I do apologize.
Actually the only way I can let you guys see the information is if I give somebody the logon information because it’s a paid subscription service.
But if somebody wants to assist me with it I’ll be glad to give the data they need individually.

Hi,

 

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.

 

Second method

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
