Description From 2009-05-20 15:15:07 PST
Steps to reproduce:

1. Open the test case (https://bugs.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=30170&action=view)

2. Examine the accessible associated with the password field in Accerciser.

Expected results: The accessible text interface would be implemented (similar to what has been done for objects of role ENTRY).

Actual results: The accessible text interface is not implemented.

Usage/Need: Screen readers such as Orca need to be able to present the number of characters displayed, indicate when the caret has moved, confirm when text has been inserted or removed, etc.

This looks fixed in trunk (git commit ID 5e4b39b07aa0abb24b5c219cf39d605343368f54).
