Nope.

 

On new, standard PC equipment including external Dell speakers with
volume controls, I was only able to hear two of the three words and
thus, I assume, would not have "passed" the captcha.  Seems very
unusable to me - having full range of hearing and corrected vision, good
typing on full keyboard, all the advantages. The background noise was
definitely an issue.

 

Thanks for posting. I find this very interesting.

Subject: Re: Accessible Captcha

 

This is an example of an audiocaptcha from ReCaptcha I recorded from the
site TrueTwit yesterday:

 

http://audio.anysurfer.be/audiocaptcha_reCaptcha_truetwit.mp3

 

Can you understand it? 

 

The reason I mentioned Mollom is because they use the phonetic alphabet
(Alpha, Beta, Charlie, Victor, ...), which is cristal clear, and don't
add background noise.

 

Kind regards,

 

Gijs

I've heard good things about the accessibility of ReCaptcha: can anyone
comment on whether this is true?

Dear Maggie,

 

Mollom (http://www.mollom.com <http://www.mollom.com/> ) is the most
accessible audiocaptcha I know of. 

I recently put up a WordPress blog with the Mollom captcha for test
purposes:

Put the word "SPAM" in the commentfield and submit the comment to
trigger the captcha. 

 

Kind regards,

 

Gijs

Hi all

 

Does anyone have an example of a website where a  Captcha implementation
is done well, in terms of accessibility.

 

Much appreciated

 

Maggie
