Re: Prefilled password fields and screen readers

This is a good question. I am not sure if this has happened with
Voiceover, as I do not use the prefill feature. I know that when I
enter a password, it doesn't indicate that anything is there.
Actually, let me check that as I've never looked before. Ok, yes I
just tried entering a password and then going back to the text edit
box, and it does not indicate that anything was entered. I would
assume this would hold true for prefilled text in Voiceover too. I
have yet to update to Snow Leopard, so I wonder if it has changed in
Voiceover. Good question, I do wonder though, how necessary it would be?
