[bksvol-discuss] Re: o/t: Web Visum improves website access for blind

Hi, Chris! Do you know if this works with MySpace? Since they started using captchas as one of their spam tools, I can't keep in touch with some folks as easily as I once could. Thanks!!

This new Firefox plug-in is, in my expert opinion, possibly the coolest bit
of AT software released in a long time.  Check it out, you won't be
displeased.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] o/t: Web Visum improves website access for blind

Ever been annoyed by captias u can't see much less solve? Or by
labeled images that may as well have been written in Martian?

Enter Web Visum! This is the best excuse you'll ever find for making
Firefox your default browser. WebVisum (visum is vision in Latin) is a
firefox 3 plugin that does all sorts of things:
1) It lets u label links & share those labels w/other users--u, in
turn, get theirs;
2) it can solve most captias w/a keystroke & puts the result on the
clipboard for pasting into the appropriate field, thus making it
suitable for both blind & deaf-blind;
3) It can OCR some image links, thereby turning them into a
recognizeable label instead of whatever;
4) It's free, & its development is ongoing.

This has been developed by a couple of sighted folks who, out of their
generosity, wanna help. I think they will start in the future
developing a premium version, but the basic features I've outlined,
they say, will remain free.

Check it out at:
www.webvisum.com

BTW, I have no affiliation w/them, nothing to gain by advertising
this, accept possibly to help some1.

Blessings.
