Re: select and copy not working


Monte, NVDA doesn't select, delete, etc. All it does is speak.

So--let's perhaps try selecting, then copying or deleting that
selection. If it is that you can actually do that, then NVDA isn't
speaking your selection, but the selection is actually being
accomplished. If, on the other hand, the selection is neither copied
nor deleted, then my suspicion is that something in your Office app
broke somewhere along the line.

It's important to figure out which we're dealing with here for a
variety of reasons, the most important of which is to figure out where
troubleshooting efforts should focus.

Hi list,

Here is a new one for me.

I'm using current versions of nvda with win10 21h2, and office 2016.

In the last day or so, when I try to select and copy or delete something in
wordpad, word, or outlook, the select function does not wor, and thus, I
cannot copy or delete or paste.

As this is happening in more than one application, maybe I have broken
something in nvda?

Thoughts, suggestions?
