Hi all,

If you've been on Ticketmaster or similar sites, you have seen the box with
a word, letters/numbers, etc. used to keep people from using automated
programs to block other users. On the Ticketmaster site, there is a 'can't
see the word' link that directs the user in ordering if they are using a
screen reader. My coworker has also seen some that are adding an audio
equivalent of the word, etc. What is the recommended way to incorporate
this technology so it is accessible? We have found that we have a need for
it in one area of our site.
