Hi! You will have to activate the textfield in wich you want to paste what you've copied first so edit will show up in the rotor. Then put two fingers on the screen a little apart from each other and turn them clockwize or anticlockwise until voiceover say edit. Then flick down with one finger untill you hear paste. And then you just doubletap anywhere on the screen to paste. hth

In order for the "edit" choice to appear, you have to be on a text field. If you're not directly typing and the keyboard isn't on the screen, it won't show up in the rotor.

Hi, The way sited people do this (also works for voiceover, and is quicker than using the roter), is to tap and hold on the text field, and then choose paste from the menu that pops up. Obviously with voiceover, you double tap and hold. You may need to explore the area around the field for the paste button, but in message, what'sapp, and so on, it's usually a flick right of the send button. Hope this helps.
