Re: Wrong Jaws behaivor


Hi Mike,

Would you by any chance know as to why are those settings turned off
by default?

Thank you,

It should say, Select and copy from..., if Jaws reports, select and copy
from virtual cursor, press the spacebar so Jaws reports, select and copy
Full content using on screen highlight

Do this for both entries, then tab to, Okay, and press enter to save /

Stay safe & take care. Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say: "Close Enough!"

Subject: [TechTalk] Wrong Jaws behaivor

Hello all,

On previous Jaws versions, I was able to select parts of a web page using
the temporary place markers and pressing Insert plus M to Select all text
between the marked place and the current position in the current document.

However, since a few months ago, this behavior changed. Now the temporary
place markers and insert M allows me to select and copy only the text. Not

the properties of the selected text. For example, if I am selecting links,
Jaws is not pasting the URL embedded to these links. Jaws used to do that

Someone know if there is any setting I should modify to be able to copy and

paste the selected text with all properties including the URL associated to

the links on the selected text?

Thanks in advance,
