Re: Question About Copying Text

What kind of document are you pasting the copied material into and in what format are you saving it?

Subject: [nvda] Question About Copying Text


Hi everyone. I have a question about copying text from webpages or anywhere that has links. I'm taking online classes, and for the discussion board assignments, a lot of people are copying text containing links as part of their posts, somehow keeping the links and other formatting intact. I've been wanting to copy text that contains links this way, but when I copy text, all the formatting seems to be removed. Is their an accessible way to do this? I'm a pretty advanced computer and NVDA user, so I'm surprised I don't know this. Thanks.
