As part of my education as "web developer" (roughly translated : P), I've been taught about accessability
One of the things, I've learned was related to the use of CAPTCHAs
Most people don't have any problems solving CAPTCHAs. But for some people, it might be a hard task to complete.
E.g. a blind person wouldn't be able to solve the CAPTCHA on the "Sign up
"-page, here at the Community Platform, because he/she can't see the word of the CAPTCHA.
One solution of this problem is to provide an audio version of the word as explained here
We should give people the possibility of being able to "listen" to CAPTCHAs, at the same as the "regular" CAPTCHA is shown.
There is already a script available, that makes this possible. It is named Securimage
, and it is really customizable
.... Sorry, Getty, it's made in PHP. ; )
That's just my two cents, but don't hestiate to ask if there's anything you want to know! : )
