Scrape text from web viewer on Windows?

I thought I'd just ask in case I have missed something in all my searching and testing. Is it possible to simply script coping the visible text in a webviewer on a windows machine? Using the source is no good as all the data is rendered through Javascript so none is available in the HTML source. Heck, I can't even get ctrl+A to work (known issue I read), but I can right click and select all then the text will copy. I read that MBS has functions to manage this and I suppose I could build a python micro-service but native functions are preferable.

 

Anyone managed to make this work?
