Re: An easier command to copy current line?

The followup message is written so as to indicate an unawareness of the procedure I gave.  This procedure is perfectly adequate.  But at this point, since the second message indicated an evident lack of knowledge of the procedure, I asnwered it appropriately.  The original writer can tell us if he wants a different way of doing things. 
 
Sometimes, when answering a question, yto answer it effectively, you go beyond the lite4ral question.  Why is it being asked?

The request was to press the read line key three times to copy to the clipboard like the title command currently does.

This is a simple request and I personally think a great idea.

 

The keystrokes listed below work but are not what was asked or requested at all.

You would do better to ask if or how something can be done instead of assuming it can't.  The ability to copy material to the clipboard using object navigation has existed for quite some time.

 

Be at the beginning of what you want to copy.  Issue the command NVDA key f9.  Move to the end of what you want to copy.  Issue the command NVDA key f10 twice quickly.  The first time selects the material, the second time copies it to the clipboard.

For instance let's say I'm in Filesilla (the FTP client) from within the
Read-only field where the connection status and other info is coming out
onscreen, thus with NVDA+l I can read the current line as the
information is being displayed. What I?d like to do is to somehow copy
this info onto the clipboard kind of like what NVDA+t 3 times does to
copy to the clipboard.
