Hey Steve and all,

Yes, it is, in fact, time we start taking visual verification more seriously
and actually begin moving to insure that it is reasonably accessible. 
Please understand that I do not believe it is reasonable to advocate for its
removal, only that reasonable accomodations to be implemented to make it
more accessible.  We *must* insist on accessibility.  Check out
http://www.blindaccessjournal.com for some new ideas.
