Hi all. I just received a message from someone on another list concerning Captia and Sirius on-line!

Looks like Sirius satellite has locked out the blind pc user
from using its online tuner service by instituting a captcha.

Is this true? I will check it soon to see.

Sirius just changed their online radio tuner to require a
captcha - an entry of random letters that only a sighted person
can see - in order to listen online.
Not only does it make it impossible for Blind users to listen
online, but it also makes it impossible for Replay A/V to
automatically tune to Sirius channels.

Would you mind writing to Sirius on behalf of the Blind
Community and finding out if there is an alternative way to log

Here's the contact form:
