Thank you for contacting VFO ® Technical Support. The JAWS® program is designed to read what displays on the screen, and, or what is typed on the keyboard. However, since "Passwords" are a secure part of the Windows operating system, JAWS is design to be sensitive to that aspect of the system security. Also, because JAWS is often run by users in public places, business offices, and schools, the screen reader has been designed so that the characters in a user's password are not spoken. This allows the user to have personal security for their accounts when they use their PC.
Notwithstanding, if you wish to make a recommendation to have this feature added to a future release of JAWS, you should send a message to
If you have any additional questions regarding this or any other issue, please don't hesitate to contact us.
If replying to this message, be sure to include all previous correspondence pertaining to this matter so that we might better assist you.

It would sure be great for Jaws to have the option to have passwords spoken or not. Tired of being locked out of a account because I mistypes a password.
