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.

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.
