      Description

      I have set JPassword.setEchoChar('@') and expected that JAWS will read '@' char but instead JAWS read it as '*'(star) character.

      Step to reproduce
      -------------------------
      1) Enable accessibility using <jdk-path>/bin/jabswitch -enable
      2) Start JAWS
      3) Run the attached test. Once the Frame is visible with JPassword.
      4) Type any character(s) into JPassword and you should see '@' character only. If JAWS reads '@' as * then bug is reproduced

      This works as expected on MacOS.
      I have attached the Screen Recording of the same.
