Chapter List

Sometimes you can come across little bits of information on a web page that you want to copy to another program. For example, you may want to copy the contact details of a friend or the telephone number of a local restaurant to your address book.

You can use the Dolphin Cursor to select and copy information from a web page.

To do this:

  1. Press SHIFT + Arrow Keys to make your selection or press CONTROL + A to select all the text in the current window. Please note that no visual highlighting appears on the screen.
  2. Press CONTROL + C to copy the selection to the Clipboard.
  3. Go to the place you want to insert the selected text.
  4. Press CONTROL + V to paste the content from the Clipboard.

Please be aware that the text you paste appears without formatting

If you need to copy and paste text from a web page and retain the format of the text then you need to adopt a slightly different approach.

So, here is what to do:

  1. Position the Dolphin Cursor on the first character of the data to be selected. Note that the first character is different to the first line. If you have navigated to the first line you should move the Dolphin cursor right so that the first letter is the focus.
  2. Press the Dolphin Cursor "Drag" command to mark the starting position.
  3. Move the virtual focus to the last character in the block of data to be selected.
  4. Press the Dolphin Cursor "Drop" command to mark the end position. The text on the web page becomes highlighted.
  5. Press the SuperNova and ScreenReader "Allow through" command.
  6. Press CONTROL + C to copy the selection to the Clipboard.
  7. Go to the place you want to insert the selected text.
  8. Press CONTROL + V to paste the content from the Clipboard.
