Re: JAWS extend select mode in NVDA?


That is not a Jaws function. Rather, it's a function of the editor
you're working in. So, if you have Word, for example, it works there.
You'll need to check w/other programs to see if they have such
functionality. Marcio, what you're talking about is NVDA's screen
review function. It only works in that particular mode.

Is there something similar to JAWS's extend select mode in NVDA? In
JAWS one can press F8 to start extended selection, and then can select
text without using the shift key.
Hmmm, not sure, but I'd think that it can be done using NVDA+F9 to mark
the beginning of the selection and NVDA+F10 twice quickly, one to mark
the end and the other to copy what you've selected.
