I like the concept of sites which use text messages that appear on your phone. Then you enter in the number they provide as the challenge. 

Audio caption solutions in my book are a negative experience because if you cannot understand the audio output. Then you cannot complete the form. As most audio challenges are distorted audio in the first place. I and quite a lot of others find this method of authentication very poor. This is of course to address the vision impairment community who cannot se the challenge graphic.

There was an article I read ages ago where I think google had developed a method of not requiring the graphical challenge at all and used a completely different method. I went looking for the article and cannot find it. :-)

Subject: example of accessible captcha?

Greetings all,
I seek a site that uses a captcha which does not involve an image.  by which I mean one using a math problem, or some other  interaction that differs from the letter number things often used.
