Re: Jaws and Microsoft Word.

...would have been nice if FS had not changed the default mode to something 
new, at least without letting us know. 

We waste a lot of time trying to solve problems that are created by 
well-meaning people who don't consider what dramatic effects might occur from 
"enhancements" like this.

  This problem is easily corrected. With Jaws 9, when you copy something from 
the web, the default is that all formatting from the original web page is 
retained. Depending on what you paste the selected text into, this may cause a 
problem. To change this, you need to open the Jaws verbosity options tree view 
while in your web browser and change the select and copy option. To accomplish 
this, do the following:



  1. Open your web browser.



  2. Press the Jaws key plus V to open the new tree view for Jaws options.



  3. Press the down arrow key to find the option for select and copy. This is 
found under the virtual cursor options. You should have to press the down arrow 
key three or four times to find this option.



  4. When you find the select and copy option, you can press the tab key to 
move to the help window. Use the say all command to read the help information 
for the select and copy option.





  5. Use the shift tab key to move back to the tree view. Press the space bar 
to change the options for the select and copy option. To make the option work 
the way it did in earlier versions of Jaws, select the "from virtual cursor" 
option.



  6. Close the Jaws verbosity options window.



  This change is permanent and remains in effect even if you shutdown Jaws or 
your computer.





  The full content option is the default in Jaws 9 - this is what retains all 
formatting when copying text from a web page.

  I'm using the latest version of JAWS 9. When I used to use JAWS 8 and early 9 
I would just do a copy & paste from either an e.mail or web page and then paste 
it into a word document and be able to format the copy in the word document, 
now with the latest version of JAWS 9 when I copy/cut text from some e.mails 
and all web pages then paste it into a word document I cannot reformat the text 
that I copied, the pasted text appears to have cells and sometimes only word on 
a line and it cannot be changed or formatted. Many times I want to cut/copy a 
financial newsletter from a website and transfer it to a word document and 
strip out useless content and cannot modify the document. Someone said a HTML 
document cannot be edited inside a word document and any help from FS has been 
useless since I get the following from them:

  1.  Activate the verbosity dialog "JAWS key+v"

  2.  Press the letter s until you get to:

  Select and copy from

  3.  Press the spacebar until this says virtual cursor and hit enter



  Now, see if you can copy as you desire to. 



  #2: There is no off/on option for that setting, it is switch to a different 
setting and the virtual cursor option is the option that was used in previous 
versions.  



    

     

  Of course I tried it with no luck, possibly doing something wrong but their 
instructions to use the space key does nothing. Frustrated to say the least

    What version of Jaws are you using and exactly what is the problem you are 
having?

    I too having been pissed off that I cannot copy & paste a web page or 
e.mail into a word document and edit it as I used to be able to do. Apparently, 
FS doesn't want to listen since I've sent them several e.mails and to no avail 
since they think we all should do as they want us to do. So far any assistance 
I've received from them does not solve the problem, why don't they just work 
with users? This program is an expensive plus they suck us in for a $120- S/M 
fee each year, what do we get from that?



    I'm about to bite the bullet and can JAWS and purchase EYEs and see if that 
works any better.



    If you find out how we can copy & paste e.mails or web pages into a Word 
document with the cells and links and edit it, let me know, otherwise I'm done 
with donating to FS each year for their S/M !

      First, I use ctrl, plus shift, and end to select the text that I want.

      Then, I use ctrl plus c to copy to the cliff board.

      Then, I use ctrl plus v to paste in to microsoft Word.

      However, when I try to read the text, Jaws reads it as a table with some 
sort of uni-code.

      I just was not sure if there is something in the setting of Word that I 
might need to change.  (That is, the menus).

      but to become what God wants.

        How are you copying the text?  Are you copying it by the page, by the 
line or a few words at a time?

          Hello,

          When I copy text from the internet and try to paste it in to Word, 
the text comes up in a table, how can I fix that?
