While typing passwords, the typed text is automatically converted into circles/bullets for security reasons.
But supposing my password is nvaccess,nvda
When I type the comma, NVDA says 8 circles pause circle (8 circles represent the number of characters in nvaccess).
This is because I have the speak typed words feature enabled.
However, while typing passwords, this feature should be disabled because in this instance the user is not typing a words.
Hope I was clear.

In password entry fields with speaking of typed words enabled, multiple asterisks are no longer pointlessly reported when beginning new words.
