I hit on the link you provided, but the web site is for sale. Did I do any
thing wrong?


Peace of the Lord be with you!

There's also a captcha solution that will run on Internet Explorer. Go to to set it up.

This is incorrect.  There IS a solution to the captcha problem and it was
designed especially for the blind.  There's an application for your web
browser called Webvisum, and it solves the visual captcha for you then
pastes it into your clipboard.  First, you need to be using Firefox.  Then
download Webvisum ---I don't know the URL offhand, but you can look it up on
Google, of course.  Once you're registered as a Webvisum user you can
download it.  Then, when you're faced with one of those things, you hit your
application key and one of the options will be Solve Captcha.  Select that
and it will take about twenty to thirty seconds to do it's work.  Finally,
it will announce that the captcha solution is in your clipboard and you can
just paste it into the edit field.  I've heard that it occasionally fails,
but I've never had this happen.

    there is not much you can do with the visual captchas that you find on
some sites. Those captchas are mostly graphic representations and there for
there is not actual text involved.

The best you can do is have someone help or at least send a message to the
website administrators and see if they will put in an audio captcha feature
which will let you here a string of text inter mixed with other background
noise from which you'll need to type in what you hear.

At this time, that is the best work around out there that I know of.

Hi folks!  I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I'm needing
some helpful hints on dealing with security text on web-sites.  I like to
visit a sight that makes you type a word or phrase every time you log on,
even though I have a password.  How do blind folks read these without the
help of sighted assistance.  Thanks very much!
