Even if available - and it isn't on every site - it is often impossible to recognize that is said. Lucky if you get some digits. But often it sounds like clips from an old film, patially with half words etc. Fortunately my ears are still pretty good, and I understand some (American) English, but the words I should recognize to enter it in the box are absolutely unknown. So I need several new audio captchas until it works. That's not a really good alternative. And for people in my country, that didn't understand English at all and/or are handycaped be bad ears, too ...

Subject: Re: [nvda] Other tool for solving the Verification Image
since some month there are more and more another kind of captchas
around, that can't be resolved by WebVisum. I also thought to ask a
volunteer at BeMyEyes but I have no idea how to reach the buttons.
These captchas i. e. ask for something like "Click on any pictures
that shows an yellow flower/a car/a man" etc. Sometimes for my
sighted brother it is even not easy to decide where to click on.
Did anybody came across such captchas and was able to solve it? Even
with help from BeMyEyes?

The only Captcha tool I ever used was included with an early Twitter
client for the blind, called Qwitter. Sadly that vanished and there
was no equivalent when Qwitter evolved into The Qube. But what I do
use now is the iPhone and Android app Be My Eyes. It calls a human
volunteer who uses the rear camera on the phone to tell you whatever
you want ... such as the colour of a tshirt or what a Captcha image
says. I've used Be My Eyes twice today to assist when Windows was
doing an update and I didn't hear anything further (I realise that
I'd somehow turned the NVDA setting to start automatically when
logged in to Windows off). Obviously common sense applies - not
having any files open with login details to any accounts visible,
but you'd get an answer to your random letters test within the
minute! ... And BME is free to install and use :)
