Would be usefull a setting to be implemented, like the Symbian screen readers have it already.
A check box in some NVDA's dialog for example.

I think this option can be useful to ensure that a typed password is right. Sighted people can't see this, but they can look at the keyboard and listening is less permanent that a writen text on the screen or on a braille display, so the risk is minor and it can be just optional.
I have tried to implement this on t4624 branch at
https://bitbucket.org/nvdaaddonteam/nvda
Thanks.

I am closing this as won't fix. Sighted people are also not seeing the letters on the screen in proper password fields and in an corporate environment whis feature would raise serious security questions. There is an addon for who ever wants to have this feature though.
If you have other arguments, please comment on it and we could reopen the discussion if needed.
