For your security, speaking passwords is not available on some screen readers like JAWS for Windows. A workaround that sometimes works is to type the password on your choice of word processor and then copy and paste it onto the password textfield. #Privacy #TypingEcho

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.

they would not allow this with any versions of jaws.

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.
