Re: speaking passwords


been there. did that.
i use window eyes for passwords then reload jaws.
a complete waste of time when they could give us the option to turn keypresses on or off in settings.
they could set it up so it needed a password to change this setting. then only the administrator would be able to change it.
this would meet the vfo criteria for security in the work place.

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.

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?
i am not a business this is home with only me. no one else is going to
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.
