Re: Question About Copying Text


I just tested it out, and it doesn't work. After I select the text using NVDA, i use NVDA+F2 to pass the next key through and then try to copy the text. Nothing gets copied though. I'm guessing this is because NVDA overrides the selection process, so when I try to copy, the computer acts like nothing is selected.

can you do the same thing by using the keyboard bypass command before (each of) your other commands?
I don't know, as I was doing "quick and dirty" experimentation.  I would imagine that pass through would work.  Others here will likely have more opportunity in the very short term to check that than I will.
