It's likely the window that had the browser with the captcha was simply hidden by another window.  I get this all the time when I ask for sighted assistance with something.  Often times, the front window that we're working in with the screen reader is not the front window on the actual screen as it should be.  This leads to windows covering parts of the screen, and sometimes, other windows covering the whole window in which I'm working.  If you maximize the current application screen (not sure, but think the keystroke is alt-enter), it will then place the current window on top of all other windows, and sighted folks will be able to see what it is you're workin on, and then can be helpful.  It's hard for them to help if they can't find the application you're in.  The more programs you have open, the more likely you are to have this issue.  It's perfectly normal, and the only thing you can do is to either allow the sighted person to find the program using the mouse, or (as I said) maximize the screen.  I've not really found any other solution, as even alt-tabbing through the programs doesn't always highlight the active program for sighted folks.  (well, more precisely, it does highlight the window, but again, it's being covered by something else, sot hey don't see it).

Could have been colouring issues, font-sizing issues, or else maybe even
webpage/browser hovering off screen's display area?

As in, fir st thing would be to maximise window, just in case, and, then
either try selecting some text in browser window, or maybe even route
mouse cursor to current navigator object, using NVDA + numpad  / since
sighted person can then try moving mouse around to try find it on
screen, etc.?

Stay well
