How do I prevent the user from accidentally leaving Speak Mode in CoughDrop?

For some users it may make sense to prevent them from accidentally leaving Speak Mode and navigating into the settings and configuration area of CoughDrop. In those cases you can require a PIN before exiting Speak Mode. Speak Mode PIN is not a device-specific setting and applies for all devices for the current user.

NOTE: The Speak Mode PIN is *not* meant as a security measure and can be discovered by others who have access to the account.
