This is from another list. In case anyone would be interested.
Google, which has a whole lot of services, uses a system called captcha, which requires someone to type the letters you see in a graphic to proove you're a human being. Many people in the blind community have asked them to give us an alternative method for signing up. Some other services like Microsoft's msn, Yahoo! and other sites like Live Journal provide audio representations of the characters you type, and many people think Google should provide the same kind of alternative method for accessing their services, but to date, they haven't. the website to visit is http://www.petitiononline.com/captcha Simply go to the site, fill in your name, e-mail address and any comments you'd like to send to google. You don't need to actually leave any comments, and your e-mail address will not be shown so there's no chance of anything bad happening. So visit http://www.petitiononline.com/captcha and sign your name to the petition. The more people we have sign this petition, the better it will look to google. Right now we have 32 signatures, but of course, for Google to take this matter even remotely seriously, we need to have as many as we possibly can. It only takes a second, and hey, anything we can do to get rid of the captcha method of verification is ok with me!
