I think it's great that you're researching and attempting to solve the captcha problem(s).

However, the "Play Question" button doesn't work in Firefox 11 on my macbook (OS 10.6.8). When I click a small box flashes in the bottom left corner and then disappears. I have my volume set to loud. Let us know when the issue is fixed. I'm happy to try it again.

I am Salvatore Battaglia, a student at MCAST, Institute of Information & Communication Technology, based in Malta. I am attending the final year of studies, reading a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Software Development. As part of the final year dissertation, in collaboration with my institute, we are trying to develop a research that aims to highlight what is needed for a more accessible web for blind and visually impaired users. In this research a web site has been implemented where a new idea of accessible CAPTCHA validation has been developed. Iím kindly asking you to enter in the website attached below, follow the instructions to test the CAPTCHA, and fill in a small survey.

The Dissertation website is:  www.salvbatt.imghero.com<http://www.salvbatt.imghero.com/>

Your feedback is highly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any difficulties or further questions.

Thanks for your help,
