Re: Speak Passwords

I just found out something interesting.  If you type characters into a password field, and move around in the field, you will still hear "star" spoken.  As you type, you will hear the characters you type.  So this password doesn't actually change anything your screen-reader is aware of on screen.  it changes what the character echo echoes, evidently, intercepting and sending the actual characters to the synthesizer earlier than they normally would be, before star would be sent to the synthesizer.

I just installed the add on and when I checked, it is shown as running.  So we definitely know that if it were running in your case, you would see it listed as such.

I doubt the site matters.  the message said the status is installed and it doesn't say running.  I think that is the indicator of the problem, not the specific site.

Tell us which banking site this is so we can try for ourselves - even without
having an account, we can still try the login system to see what it says.

As Tyler said "please give the exact steps to reproduce the problem" - that
means tell us everything we need to know (thanks for mentioning which browser)
so we can try to experience the problem too and hopefully help to solve it.

Thanks,

Antony.
