Most of us are familiar with touchscreens on our phones and we can use press and hold to perform a right-click action such as copy and paste text.
To copy a paragraph, we can touch and hold a word, then drag the set of bounding handles to highlight all the text needed before we tap Copy from the pop-up context menu.
This generally works well in most content in a browser or in an app but there are exceptions.
We can't copy text easily on the screen from some apps like Google News and Play Books that have disabled copying of text, and we can feel really frustrated when we can't take a snippet of text but have to type it out all over again.
That’s not the end of the road. This excellent tool Universal Copy takes only a few steps to bypass the restriction and allows you to access and copy text displayed on the screen, using Android’s built-in Accessibility Services.
Try it out and see if it works for you, too.
