No, there is no way to do it. The only work around it is that you use
the prodcuts of the company that provides an audio version (Google
provides an audio version for all of their products).

By the way, it is called "Captcha"

Slade, It can't be done mate, the text you have to enter is displayed in an
image which jaws won't read.  Also the image is made deliberately blurred so
that you can't even use ocr software to scan it.

Subject: jaws and "enter the text as shown in the box"

hey all,

sorry I don't know the term to describe these spam filters, although I guess
I understand as to why some sites have these boxes.  Anyway, is there a jaws
command or trick to getting the text read?

I've tried jaws cursor and even attempted the websites page information yet
nothing works.

And many of these websites don't  have the audio option in case visually
impaired folks can't see the text.  Basically, is there a way around these
