Hey Jeff,

Well, of course, I am happy about what has already been accomplished, but I do 
want to see Blogger's CAPTCHA fixed soon and, ultimately, we need to get 
solutions to CAPTCHAs that include the deaf-blind population at some point.

  I think it will, but the timing on it is not known.  Remember that Blogger 
was bought by Google and it may take a bit more work to implement this into 
Blogger.  This is my opinion and does not represent any contact with Google, so 
I could be entirely wrong on all of it LOLOL.

  This is tremendous news! I just tried it, and will be putting a short segment 
into my next podcast.

  As part of the segment, I went to a Blogger blog whose owner uses word 
verification to prevent comment spam. Unfortunately, Blogger does not appear to 
have implemented an audio verification option. Does anyone know if this 
addition is planned?
