Re: OT Yahoo Accessibility on PetitionOnline

I wish the petition was more broad and say something to the effect: I
am blind or a person who believes in equal access. (then the rest)

I signed anyway with a pubic comment.

Subject: [WebAIM] OT Yahoo Accessibility on PetitionOnline

Hi. Don't know what your opinions are on the
effectiveness of PetitionOnline, but a friend of mine
has created a petition to ask Yahoo to add an audio
recording alongside their CAPTCHA pictures to make it
possible for blind people to create a Yahoo account
without sighted assistance, as of now the only option
is to leave your phone number for someone at Yahoo to
call you back, which it's been my experience, they
don't. Even my Mom has trouble reading those things,
and she can see with glasses. So here's the link.
