[Nfbmo] Reading Captcha Codes

Hello, Dennis. Recent versions of JAWS for Windows allow for a person to do
OCR, but the captcha is not meant to be solved by OCR. It is convoluted,
complicated, and constructed in such a way that a person really has to be
able to see it and use the power of the brain to discern what it is. There
was a site that one could use with Firefox to transmit an image and have
someone visually decrypt it. I thought I heard that it went away. I'm afraid
all of this leads to my recommendation that you wait until you next have a
human screen reader.

Subject: [Nfbmo] Reading Captcha Codes

I seem to recall a discussion on this list several months back regarding
reading Captcha codes using JAWS.  I believe it was stated there was a
program or Web site or something that would allow a JAWS user to read a
Captcha code.  However, I can't seem to find anything on that.  Am I
engaging in wishful thinking or is there a way to do this and if so what is
it?  The Captcha code in question has no audio challenge so that is not an
option.  Any help would be appreciated.
