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 an earlier
