That's my point. You're making comparisons with VO. VO doesn't even do that.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
No, not even on the iPhone. If you find the right letter you want, but
accidentally slip before you actually enter that letter (I've done this), VO
doesn't tell you you've typed the wrong letter. Figuring that out is
entirely on you.

I dont think he wants his password in clear text. I think he wants Jaws to
echo the characters as he types them. The screen would still show stars and
the speech history would also... It really isnt as big a deal as you all
seem to think.

need to know what letter you are on. Theoretically if you didn't have a
headset and somebody was standing next to you and was paying attention they
could remember what they hear, but it's pretty easy in such a situation to
swipe your finger around the screen a bit so Voiceover speaks multiple
letters of numbers before you enter the one you want. I guess you can use a
headset with Jaws, but what he wants is for the password to be "visible" and
that is not at all the same as the iPhone saying what letter you are on
because as soon as you type the password it does not read/echo it back and
it is not visible on the screen. If you want to compare the iPhone saying
what character you touch when you first touch it that would be like somebody
watching over your shoulder what keys you press on a keyboard.
probably a broken thing.
hard for them to do... Acting as if they are being unreasonable or ignorant
in there wants is not helpful to anyone... If they need to hear the
characters it is not your or my place to question them... Jaws could read
the characters without having them visible in speech history. I don't see
this as a issue if the person is alone or doesn't care if the person with
them hears the code. I Phone's speak the passwords no matter what you want
no one is saying don't use IPhones because of it...

that up and see if they can't find a passsword in there.
the best of window eyes into jaws and give us a better screen reader...Regards,the code from Window Eyes. If they get enough feedback they may include
I can hope. :)
