Hi Gene,

That's two for two today.  The only thing I think was kind of bad about the way this happened is that the original developer of this program didn't tell anyone that he was discontinuing the service/software. It was similar to what happened at Webvisum.  One day it was there, and the next it wasn't.  Unlike James Scholes who tried to revitalize the Webvisum add on and actually extended its life for a year or so, when it became too much of a problem for him to try tackling, he let it be known that he simply didn't have the means/resources to continue to make Webvisum compatible with later versions of Firefox. That is all you can expect of people; he tried and after a time just couldn't do it and he made sure that people knew he had tried and couldn't continue.  That's all anyone can ask.

Whether it was more expensive than it should have been is one question.  But being blind may cost you some money because you may need a service that you need to pay for.  Ideally, you would get such services for free but this is not an ideal world and assuming that someone charging for something is exploiting you is not reasonable nor valid logic.  It depends.

I’m glad it’s gone. Why should anybody have to pay to solve captures? It was nothing more than exploitation!

The only trouble with this solution is that I use a “headless” computer.

I could hook it up to a TV, but I would have to unplug some stuff and find an extra HDMI cable.

But I have used that app on other computers that I had a monitor connected to, when I was setting up the BIOS.

So for most folks, that is a good solution.



It is a NUC PPYH, a small portable desktop, and I don’t normally have a monitor connected to it.

Hello All,

When I am faced with a CAPCHA challenge, I will make use of the Be My Eyes iPhone app. Just ask the volunteer to tall me what's on the screen. Safer than using an unknown add-on.

They Ask Me If I'm Happy; I say Yes.
They ask: "How Happy are You?"
I Say: "I'm as happy as a stow away chimpanzee on a banana boat!"
