Re: Question About Copying Text

I believe this is a feature (or a known problem) of NVDA - all the copy/paste commands in NVDA operate only on plain text. I just checked with Jaws - it can preserve formatting and hyperlinks when copying from browser to Microsoft word. Maybe others can tell whether this works with narrator.

I think I just found this workaround for you. If you select text in browser and then instead of pressing Control+C you press applications button and in the context menu select copy, then at least the hyperlinks seem to be preserved. This works for me when copying from Chrome to MS Word.

Hi. Okay, let me try to explain this better. I'm taking an online class where there's a lot of reading. For some of the discussion board posts, we're supposed to copy and paste the part of the reading that we want to talk about. When my classmates copy text from the reading, they somehow manage to keep the links and other formatting intact. I want to be able to do this. I'm copying from a web page and pasting it into a rich text edit field. When I paste the copied text, all formatting and links seem to have been removed. I hope this helps you understand what I'm trying to do. Thanks.

Hi,
I am try to understand your requirement.
Do you needed to see the web format in rich format document.
Or while your students copying text from web they should not copy the
links which comes in middle of the actual detailed text.

Kindly write your requirement with scenario
It is easy to help you out.
Because I have seen few NVDA and windows ten selection and paste
options and when require I am also applying it.

With regards,

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

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.
