That is a fabulous tip! I tried it, and I can select and copy flawlessly now. Thanks TerriLynne!

Thanks for that information. For me, when all else fails, call JAWS technical support. *smile*
Here is what they told me to do:
While in the browser, hit insert+v then type select. Down arrow to select copy from … you will either be on from virtual cursor, or on from full screen. If you are on full screen, it makes everything screwy. I changed it to from virtual cursor, and voila, I can now copy from web sites with no problem.
Hi TerriLynne. I had the same problem on medical reference sites. I would select and copy some text, and either would not get what I selected when I pasted into Word, or my cursor would jump and I would find myself in the middle of an ad. In Internet Explorer, I just turned on popup blocker by doing alt-T for tools, arrow up once to Internet Options and hit enter, hit ctrl-tab until you get to the privacy page, and then use the tab key to get to “turn on popup blocker check box unchecked. Hit spacebar to check that box and tab to apply, hit spacebar to apply, and then hit okay. Turning on popup blocker helped me a lot to be able to select text and get my cursor to stay put.
I have the problem on any recipe site that I have found.
David, TerriLynne and all
It isn't clear whether this is one site or more where this problem occurs. If its one site, there may be something odd about how the site is coded to display but if it is a general problem, I'm not sure what's causing it.
