Re: CTRL-C doesn't work for copying text when NVDA is on

Did you mention in one email further in the thread that copying with control+c is working in Word but not Firefox?  Do you happen to be selecting text with the mouse?  There is a known issue where if you select text with the mouse on the web, pressing CONTROL+C doesn't work with NVDA running.  In that case, what you can do is either right click or press the applications key to open the context menu, and choose "copy".

Hey everyone,

I recently swapped from JAWS to NVDA because it seems to work better for me for certain web applications that I use for work.

However, whenever NVDA is running I have noticed that CTRL-C no longer works for copying text to the clipboard.

Has anyone else ever had this problem? Is there a command I need to bind to a different keystroke to make the normal copy functionality work again? It works normally whenever NVDA is not running.

Best regards,
