Creating a text file with a web page as a screen reader "sees" it

Oh yea wise ones

This is probably trivial, and I am just failing to get this to work.
I am evaluating a web page, and the people in charge would like to see
it prcisely as my screen reader does (Jaws in this case, or NVDA).
I could do this "live" by using "Braille Viewer", but I am not there.
What I want to do is to create a text file with the page as it appears
in my screen reader. I tried to do this in Jaws by virtualizing the IE
window and copying the text, but this only shows the first couple of
lines of the page.
Is there a better way to do this?
I don't really need the advanced navigation info, such as headings
etc, they just want to
see the page content as I would see it linearly using Jaws (NVDA or
any other screen reader for that matter).
If there is an easy way to do this, please let me know.
