Re: speaking passwords

Hi, Brian. There are other options in JAWS, such as, Use JAWS at Logon for All Users, which are subject to administrator approval. If VFO made the Voice Passwords option the same way, security would not be a problem, because, unless the person was administrator, they could not change to Voiced or spoken passwords. The security argument is spurious.

To speak or not to speak passwords should be an option the end user should be able to enable or disable.

 

You can say this as many times as you like.   But it is utterly untrue if one is taking the idea of security generally seriously and wanting to put out a product that a very great many third parties in the business and government worlds would be apoplectic were it to be used.

It's not all about you (and that's for any you, not you, Peter Donahue).  Your convenience and desires are far from the only consideration.
