Ah, but I meant “no problem”, not “nota bene”, but I suppose both could have applied.

NP.

You will want to save this in your proper configuration settings for chrome, then, most likely, if you don’t want to change the quick setting every time.

Sure, that makes sense.

The only thing I can think of at the moment is, try going into the quick settings for Chrome with insert-v, then to “select and copy full content” in the virtual cursor options. Whatever option is currently checked (mine is “using on-screen highlight”), switch to the other one and see if it makes a difference.

Note that if you choose “from virtual cursor”, you will get no proper formatting, just plain-text, but for your purposes this would be fine.

Well I download music from youtube

I search Wikipedia for artists and albums.  I then look at the tracklistings and select then copy it.

Then I paste it into notepad, only when I paste nothing is pasted!

I’m using the same version of jaws and windows as you JM

Hello kevin.

 

Using google chrome 74.0, JAWS 2018 on a Windows 10 pro computer, I am not currently having difficulty copying text from wikipedia.

Can you tell us what happens?

Is the wrong text being copied?

Is no text being copied?

And your JAWS version may indeed be relevant.

What webpages do you mean, might be a good starting point.

Your JAWS version might also be relevant.

 

Some webpages are designed so that sighted users can’t copy text. An example might be a page containing legal forms or documents that you are supposed to pay for after filling out so you can get a printable version, usually in PDF. The virtual buffer in jAWS circumvents this to an extent, but it is not foolproof.
