I was working on a friend's computer and had to edit some Email account
settings in Microsoft Outlook 2007. When I tabbed to the password
field, I found that NVDA read the contents of the field and spoke
individual characters as I cursored in the edit field. NVDA identified
the field as a protected edit field, and I verified with the person who
owned the computer that the password is not being displayed on-screen.

I had an opportunity to see this again recently. I tried to get a copy
of the developer info but was unable to save it.

I can also tell you that flat review sees the password as stars.

I can confirm that this still happens with the latest 2012.2.1 release.
