From a screen readers perspective, you hear something like "circle bullet," or *** (star, star ,star". This could be somewhat dependent upon the data dictionary and how it might be customized. For the most part, what you see in the password screen is probably what the screen reader will speak.

Subject: [WebAIM] online accessibility and privacy

Hi all, so I asked a question a few weeks ago about accessibility and privacy, things like passwords online (people with DD, how do you make it rememberable without putting their security at risk? what does JAWS and other screen readers tell you when you type in your password and what if someone else were in the room?)

This weekend I have to host a discussion in the PhD class about these and any other issues that you think are important, especially with a nod to identity theft and your privacy.

Please speak up and mention any issues/concerns that you and others that you may know with disabilities may have that are unique to the way they view the web.

Thank you very much!
