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.

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. ----- Original Message ----- From: Mike Mote To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, August 10, 2010 8:53 PM 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!
