I'd say they are bugs. I see the user list, type in the password and do 
not consider sound as important for a Graphical login which only is 
momentarily used. There should be a sight impaired program separately 
for login related to sound. I don't thing that there is one, but it 
would be a valuable tool for sight limited circumstances.

If while you are in school, there is a shortage of qualified personnel
in a particular field, then by the time you graduate with the necessary
qualifications, that field's employment market is glutted.
