Android Clipboard

If you have text that you need to paste repeatedly, you can benefit from the clipboard feature on your Android tablet while using nVoq.Mobile Voice. The steps below explain how to use the clipboard.

The clipboard is not available for Mobile Voice on devices running Android 12.
If your device is running Android 12, the clipboard option will not be available on the Android text menu shown below. For more information, see Why doesn't this work on my device?

Add to the Clipboard

  1. Type or dictate and then tap on the text to select what you want to add to the clipboard.
    Android-select-text

  2. When all text you want added is selected, tap Copy.
    Android-copy-selected-text

  3. Once the text is copied, tap Clipboard. (This option is not available for Mobile Voice on devices running Android 12.)
    Android-select-clipboard

 

Paste from the Clipboard

  1. Tap into the field where you want to paste the text and then tap Clipboard.
    Android-paste-from-clipboard

  2. All items on the clipboard appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap on the one you want to paste.

Why doesn't this work on my device?

The menu that appears when you highlight text and tap on it is a feature of Android, not nVoq.Mobile Voice. With the latest update of the Android 12 operating system, Android added privacy and security settings which no longer allow third-party keyboards, including Mobile Voice, to access the clipboard memory, which may contain Protected Health Information (PHI) and is therefore not HIPAA compliant. Mobile Voice can only use temporary memory, which can only store the most recently copied items. nVoq is exploring future options to replace this feature.
