Directions to read a Captcha


Betsy Grenevitch
 

I have no idea how long ago I wrote down the directions I have but cannot seem to get it to work to read a Capchua as I seem to be missing a step or else Cloud vision no longer works with NVDA. Could someone please send me the directions to read a capchua that seems to be needed to obtain my medical report? It would be greatly appreciated. I have that I am supposed to go to the NVDA menu and right arrow but did not seem to write down what I am to right arrow to in my directions.  Thank you so much.

Hi, Betsy.
I'm not aware of any functions built into NVDA that can decode and announce captchas.
That being said the extension that I've used in the past is Rumola, which you can get here.
https://skipinput.com/
It is not free but it does give you a few free attempts to solve captchas, after which the fee is incredibly reasonable unless their costs have changed.

I'm very surprised that anything to do with a statutory body in most countries still uses these, as legislation should make the use of visual only devices illegal.

There are now so many other choices out there these days. I've not had to solve one for several years, and usually after complain to the company or authority they get sorted.

David, I know so little about how to use programs on a computer that I cannot figure out from the directions how to actually activate this program once I have installed it thus I have not installed it yet. As I have mentioned out here before, I am a step-by-step person and often have to refer back to those steps thus the reason I still had the steps except for one I missed of the cloud vision options. Those must have been for quite some time ago. With what they are calling "mild dementia" now, I have to write even more in depth steps.


Later this morning I plan on writing down the directions they give so that I will have them but do not understand all of them.


I could never thank some people on this list enough for how far they have gotten me with NVDA through the years. They have been such a blessing that words cannot express my gratitude for their willingness to help me through the years.


Thanks again for this suggestion.

In my recent experience, it is very rare to find a captcha that does not feature an audio challenge alternative if the first alternative is visual (e.g., click on all pictures containing a bus).  It does happen, but not often anymore.

Even other varieties typically contain some link that is there for the blind or visually impaired (and even otherwise impaired) that gives an alternative in a different sensory modality than the one the captcha uses by default.

If anyone, particularly a government agency [in the USA], is using one that's visual only then a loud complaint should be made, as that is an ADA violation.

It is well to open one's mind but only as a preliminary to closing it . . . for the supreme act of judgment and selection.

I just found one without an audio alternative this morning, on this registration form.

Well, given the nature of that website, and that it looks like it's not been updated in any substantial way in a very long time, that's not surprising.  It doesn't look like that page has been touched in many years, and I doubt that any complaints to that site owner would result in any action, either.

My daughter says she is planning on contacting the company who has the captcha that is not accessible and letting them know they need to change it to an accessible one. She is always pushing for accessible websites with companies.    


Thank you for correcting the spelling. I do not recall ever reading the word in Braille and could not get Alexa to spell it for me. She kept wanting to spell "capture".

Hi Betsy.

 

Is your daughter visually-impaired? Does she work in the accessibility field?

 

I’m new in that field and trying to make as many connections as possible.

If you have a apple account in anything. They have a excellent audio captcha.

I had to update a password and the audio gave you time to put everything in they said. the numbers clearly with white noise background that made the numbers really clear.

If all followed this example captcha would be no problem for any one.
