Blogger adds Audio CAPTCHA

web

blogger word verification screen shot Google's blogger service has added audio support for CAPTCHA codes. I have pointed out in the past that I don't like them because they aren't accessible to people who are blind or have poor vision. Blogger's solution does do a lot to make the service more accessible, but it is still not section 508 compliant. The audio requires that you have good ears since google adds background noise to prevent computer programs from interpreting them.
