Re: NVDA command to copy a link

You don't have to use the mouse if you are in browse mode or in a list view in a program that supports this kind of thing.  and you only use the context menu if you are copying a link address where the link is words such as click here to see the article.  If the link is written out,
you copy it to the clipboard and paste it wherever you want.
 
If the link is words, Be on the link.  Open the application menu either with the application key or shift f10.  Look at the items in the menu.  Is there something like copy link location or copy link?  Please give a concrete example including telling us if you want to copy a written out link or a link as words, such as click here to see the article.  Also, tell us what program you are using.

Hi Quentin,

Thank you so much for your prompt reply.  My keyboard does not have an application key.

Sorry for being such a novice, how do you copy with the mouse?  Is there an alternative to using the application key?  Sometimes I used the shift-f9 which provides a menu that has a copy link command.  Unfortunately, for some reason it at times copies the link above the one I am interested in copying.

Many thanks for your help.

Blessings

In many cases, if you navigate to a link, you can use the applications key to bring up the context menu and choose "copy link location" or "copy link address".

Re: NVDA command to copy a link

No.  What kind of link?  A written out link such as
http://www.microsoft.com or links as words such as click here to watch the report. 
NVdA can copy text such as in a dialog or anyplace there is no program cursor but that isn't a copy link command.  You can use it to copy a link or any other text where there is no application cursor.  The link must be a written out link such as the Microsoft link I used as an example.

Re: NVDA command to copy a link

David Csercsics
 

If you don't have an applications key, you can usually press shift+f10 to get the context menu. Control+c is also the shortcut key for copying text, files, or anything else that has been selected in Windows. I'd recommend looking through the Windows help for a keyboard shortcut guide. The current version of that according to Windows 10 is here:


https://www.bing.com/search?q=windows+10+keyboard+shortcuts&filters=ufn%3a%22Windows+10+keyboard+shortcuts%22+sid%3a%22d691ab7b8e244605b41e6e94907db6a2%22+feature%3a%22techgenericanswer%22+catguid%3a%22OrionB7831B5B454138233AE314FDEC30CEFE%22+segment%3a%22generic.carousel%22+secq%3a%22how+to+get+help+in+windows+10%22+psid%3a%22ce9d9eda155641629da2994a27fc4edd%22+supwlcar%3a%220%22&FORM=SNAPST

If that link doesn't work, just press f1 from your desktop and then look for the keyboard shortcuts link.

Yep.  SHIFT+F10 is the "universal replacement" for an applications/menu key.   I use it almost exclusively since I move among machines, some of which don't have the applications/menu key on the keyboard.

I've also found at least one occasion when installing Windows 10 that I cannot get a response using the applications/menu key but always can using SHIFT+F10

Re: NVDA command to copy a link

Hi Pascal, SHIFT+F10 is the alternate way of bringing up the context menu to pressing the applications key (or clicking the right mouse button).  If it's copying the link above, it might be that you are in between links (at the end of the first link and the start of the second link), in which case, try pressing the right arrow.

The only reason I mentioned the mouse in the first place was that I know that is one situation where selecting text and then using control+c doesn't copy, you shouldn't need to use the mouse to copy if you don't otherwise use the mouse.

Re: Windows 10 mail app reading inconsistently in email composition window

Hi! I know I’m late to the party but just seeing this thread right now. Yes I have the same problem when in the message body using the arrow keys it reads the text very inconsistent. I’m 95% sure it has always done this using the Mail app, but I have only been using the Mail app for about four months. As of right now I’m using NVDA  19.2 but earlier it would have been 19.1 and 19.1.1. I notice it does work with windows narrator though.

I do not know why you are having this problem. I have been using the windows 10 mail app for the last three years. When I open an email I just use the down arrow to read.  What I would prefer is that the messages AKA list of emails were next to all accounts. I have several email accounts and when I am done with one I need to tab five times to change accounts.

hello all! I am so glad that you brought that up about how the Windows mail app is acting. I have had exactly the same problem in the Windows 10 mail app, what I have to do, is use the review cursor reading commands to read the mail message with the review cursor, find where I want to edit, and then press the key command to move the focus to where the review cursor is, and then I can cracked my mistakes. The the review cursor is the only way I can read an email. You are cracked, if I simply use the up and down arrow keys the focus will not say the correct text at all for what is on each line and the message that you are typing in the mail app. Nvda has not worked well in the Windows 10 mail app for a long time when it comes to typing, reading, and doing just about anything with messages. I have to use many round about ways to even use the Windows 10 mail app oh, like I said, I have to read messages with the review cursor. David Moore
