Agreed, this is exactly the way it works in Safari on my iPhone. Do I use it, no. However, for those that desire the behavior it should be a toggle. Same argument could be made for the ribbons. Jaws offers a toggle to enable their approach or access as sighted users do in Windows. Again, to satisfy all camps make it a choice.

Yes, Jaws should have the ability to either say "star" or the letter as it is typed in. Surely it would not be too difficult to have a toggle in Jaws which would Allow the user to decide which output was required at the time.

If sighted users can't see the password why should we?

Dam shame that FS doesn't think its users have the capacity to make a decision to speak passwords or not.

i asked for this last year and vfo told me this was a security risk
and they would not allow this with any versions of jaws.
and why not?

see the passwords. unless my dog can talk. grin

With both Window Eyes and NVDA you have a option to speak passwords as
you type them in. I sure would like to see this feature in JAWS.
