Nick,

It would be useful, but the devil is in the detail.

Secure logins can be achieved this way:
Put one person known image in a page of strangers photographs, on a 
number of pages, and that's fairly good security.
(ie the user has to click on a series of known images)

take a look at http://www.peepo.co.uk for a web browsing experience for 
non-readers.....
The graphics and software are dedicated to the public domain, this 
might seem obvious, but in proprietary systems you have to own the 
graphics, and hence the software.....
Users have to remember the sequence that unlocks the experience they 
seek.
This can also help develop alphabet skills, click on radio, type 'c', 
click on capitol radio.....

Could an open source email program also provide a long term learning 
experience?
without a doubt ~:"

thanks

Jonathan
