the button to go to the next page, and you'll be in. It's a little spooky.

  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

I have a password.  How do blind folks read these without the help of sighted 
assistance.  Thanks very much!
