Hello List,

I hope I can make my question clear for someone to answer.  For example, 
when in a Word document, you can select text using JAWS by holding down the 
shift key and select text.  This will enable you to print only the text 
selected if desired.  When on a web page, if the shift key is held down to 
select text and you try to print only the selected text, the "print 
selected" option in the print dialog will not appear.  The odd thing is that 
if a sighted person holds down the left mouse button to select text, the 
"print selected" option will appear.  All that being said, how can a person 
select text using JAWS on a web page to enable the printing of only the 
selected text?  Hope this makes sense...

Thanks in advance,
