For those of us who only speak English, we have trouble with them too.

Oh, thats true. I'm not a native english speaker, I can read in english and can understand some things when someone speaks to me, but, understand an distorted voice speaking numbers or leters in english? for me is too dificult. the voice says "8" and I think "ok, he say 8 or h..." and it is a new challenge normally... I can use these, but with too many dificult, and I think is imposible for people that doesn't understand english.

Even if available - and it isn't on every site - it is often

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 ...

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?

Yours sincerely

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 :)
