Sites need to be secured somehow.

capchas are the logical step one of them. passive blocking works to.
A lot of the recapcha stuff by google has improved people do care.
One thing which is not used much is logical captchas, you ask a question, and its randomly generated or several, fill in the blank etc.
True a robot could guess even that but it is accessible.
On top of the capchas you need to setup your credentials, maybe even varify your email address.
If x is a spammer they may use an expired address or just spoof one, and who knows it may or may not work and thats not full proof either.
some sites require a mobile varification as well.

In my view capchars are a ridiculous solution to a problem. I know for a fact that these sites still get spammed so somebody out there has found a way to either decode them by machine or hack past them. They should as I said back when we first encountered them, have had a massive campaign to boycott all sites using them, Then this situation would never have arisen.
Sorry but I feel let down by the blind community here.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Any Captcha Solving Add-on Works with FireFox 59 and NVDA 2018.1?
You shouldn't panic... You can keep a portable version of Firefox 52.x ESR (Extended Security Release) for handy for situations where you kow you'll need to solve capthas. Audio Captchas are pretty common these days, but they aren't always a solution, because sometimes, in order to play the audio file, you have to leave the edit field, and it's a pain in the neck, because you can't type the letters or numbers as you hear them.
I'm using the latest verson of Firefox, andkeep an ESR portable for emergency situations.
That's the only workaround available right now, as far as I know.

I really wish there was a way to make Webvisum work with the new FireFox 59 browser, but I fear this project is dead!
Is there any other free captcha solving add-on I can use that works with FireFox 59 and NVDA 2018.1?
Don't think it is fair we have to use an older, outdated FireFox browser to gain access to Webvisum, and I refuse to do so.
Has anyone found a work-around to this on-going nusome for users of screenreaders browsing the web?
