Hi Ben and all,

First, I'm taking a more detailed pass at this especially after reflecting 
on posts after mine.  I was not able to tab to the links as I had originally 
stated but had to use the virtual cursor to get to them.  I was finally abel 
to listen to the audio and get 7 out of the 8 numbers.  The audio played in 
the browser but took a bit of time to load.  I had no way of repeating the 
audio.  When submitted, I got a puzzling response though because I was told 
that I'd digitized 1 word.  should this be true for the audio as well?  I 
love the concept behind this.

links could be clearer as is exemplified by the snapshot of the rendering 
below.  I don't think we need the word red.

Type the two words:

red/refresh
red/audio
red/help

Submit

The words above come from scanned books.
By typing them, you help to digitize old texts.

By messy, It appears as though there is a problem with the error out put in 
that it reads success at the same time as failure.

Here is the rendering:
Wrong!
You've digitized 1 word.

Incorrect. Try again. [help]

red/refresh
red/audio
red/help

Submit

The words above come from scanned books.
By typing them, you help to digitize old texts.

I have no problem with the controls but cannot understand the audio.  Also,
the error page is a bit messy.

A demo is here:

http://recaptcha.net/fastcgi/demo/recaptcha

The reCAPTCHA is the only thing on that page, other than a submit button.
