reading-1310 Select and copy text

Reading systems should provide the ability to copy pieces of text that could be used for notes, in quotations, or to facilitate searching terms contained in the book. In some cases, this could be achieved using an AT such as a screen reader, for instance with a dedicated cursor or other procedures.

Copy the text (399 characters) between the words "Begin" and "End" from the passage below.

Begin Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water, unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath the loveliest tints of azure. Consider also the devilish brilliance and beauty of many of its most remorseless tribes, as the dainty embellished shape of many species of sharks. Consider, once more, the universal cannibalism of the sea; all whose creatures prey upon each other, carrying on eternal war since the world began.


If the text can be accurately selected, copied and pasted into another application, then mark the test as passed. Explain the mechanism in a note to assist other users.

Indicate Pass or Fail.
