There was an interesting article at sitepoint a while back where a simple solution using hidden fields was used.

http://www.sitepoint.com/easy-spam-prevention-using-hidden-form-fields/

I spoke to one of our developers who thought it had some merit. With the community of experts out there on this list surely someone would like to have a go at this.

We are an Australian Government department and currently use recaptcha, which in my opinion is one of the better ones but is still lacking. In the pursuit of making all of our sites WCAG2.0 compliant, current CAPTCHA solutions are going to keep us from getting there.

It would be great to have a solution that has been developed and tested (thinking of all those AT users on the list) by the accessibility experts.

Thanks,

Leon

Subject: CAPTCHA information

Question:  What is the single best resource to provide corporations who have an inaccessible visual CAPTCHA, are new to the issue of accessibility, still want a CAPTCHA, and are interested in an audio or logic alternative.  (Yes - we tell everyone to get rid of CAPTCHAs!)

Thanks for current resources.  This is becoming more of an issue because the audio option on reCAPTCHA (by Google) is currently indecipherable.  (how can we fix that?!?)

Thanks!
