I don’t know why it is not on the Community add-ons
page but the NVDA Global Commands Extension add-on add the ability to both
detect and announce copy and paste and select, as far as I can see as well as
Jaws does for NVDA in it s default settings. So install that and the
problem is sorted. I stopped using ClipSpeak ages ago.
It includes a host of other invaluable features as well.
I especially use the multiple level volume controls, quick access to
speech history and system tray short cuts. It also adds a setting to enable
NVDA, like Jaws, to loop around with single letter navigation to the top of
web pages if no more elements are found. So if you press H for heading and
there are no more headings it will announce that you are going back to the top
of the page and find the first heading again for you. The announcement
makes this better than Jaws as you are clearly told what is happening. I find
this particularly useful. This specific feature is not enabled by default
in Global Commands Extension and you have to enable it in settings.
The best way to learn all the host of available features is
to hit NVDA plus J which plays a tone to indicate that a layered series
of commands have been enabled , a bit like Jaws plus spacebar. Now
hitting the H key will open all the available commands in a menu from which
you can cursor up and down to easily run each command and at the same time
learn the keyboard shortcuts for each command.
I think it is a brilliant add-on and gets regularly updated
through automatic notifications which come up in NVDA to invite update.
I have an older version of the actual add-on install but
which the add on updated itself through NVDA to be compatible with the latest
version. Presumably you will need the latest initial add on version to work in
the latest NVDA. A web search should find it I think.
I will try and find it myself if no search can find it.

I had the same thing. I can only assume that it won't
be updated. I can't
cross-reference my list of existing add-ons, because I've
removed all of the
add-ons that were marked as incompatible as recommended in
