Re: reCAPTCHA replacement

I actually received a link to this on another list, and couldn’t get it to work at all. I tried it out in both Safari and Google Chrome, but all I got was an empty edit box. Interacting didn’t work either. I think the best audio CAPTCHA by far that I’ve seen is on the NFB’s site for their Free Cane program. At least the audio CAPTCHA was present last I checked their site, which was back in the summer of this year. But they used a service called Sounds Right, where you had to pick out a specific instrument from a series of sounds. To me though, the best kind of CAPTCHA is either none at all or a text-based one because they don’t discriminate against people with hearing impairments.
