Hi all,
I just wanted to let you know, that CAPTCHAs on the sharing pages of this site are unsolvable by the Web Visim add-on, used in Firefox to assist visually impaired folks with signing up with sites that have them. I'd appreciate if this were looked into and something done about it. Thanks for any feedback.

The captchas on this site are from recaptcha. This is probably the most widely used captcha service out there.

I believe what Grinler was getting at, is that Bleeping Computer uses one of, if not, the leading captcha applications available. The issue you are having is not something we have control over fixing. If you have an issue with how it works you need to address that with the application developers.
