    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.

  Subject: A question about captchas.

  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!
