Re: JAWS extend select mode in NVDA?
This is not really a JAWS extended select mode. It is a Word function, and, you can use the same function with NVDA; the status is just not announced.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Consequently, you may press F-8 once to turn on a select mode. Pressing a second time selects the word. Pressing a third time selects a sentence or the end of the paragraph (whichever comes next). Pressing a 4th time selects either the paragraph or the end of the document. Once selected, of course, the text may be copied, cut, bolded, or whatever. NVDA just does not announce what is being selected. That would be a nice feature, but unlike reading capital letters by line, it is not crucial.
I often hit f-8 once,search for a particular word or series of words (or unique character), and then take action on the text selected in this manner.
