Hi all,
Lately I've noticed that there is a new version of the audio captcha; it has
a different voice set against the muffled background noise. I have a
extremely difficult time understanding this new voice; to me it is very
indistinct. It could be that it is just set at a frequency that I can't hear
as well.
I'm wondering if others have noticed this change, and whether others are
also having a difficult time with it?

And, I still come across captcha fields with no audio or other alternatives.

I know we're beginning to stray off topic here, but to me there very
related. It seems like this is a good list to pose such questions too.

The final breakdown of webvisum is fairly recent (within the last couple
weeks), if not even closer to the present. Solona has been gone for quite
awhile (at least a year, possibly even two by now).

have, given that more and more sites are building in a form of audible
solution. But recently, while attempting to fill out an e-mail form
in Internet Explorer, I ran across a purely visual CAPTCHA that
prevented me from sending the message. Having used Firefox with
Webvisum previously, I installed Firefox and then installed the
Webvisum add-on--only to find that is now an inactive
domain and that there is no server at the other end of the equation to
help us solve visual CAPTCHA through this tool.l. Then, to my true
dismay, I looked for Solona and found that this service appears to be
down as well, its domain inactive and for sale.

What have I missed? Maybe I am channeling the spirit of Rip Van
Winkel and have slept through several years. Why are these services
down? Has anything replaced them? or have I just picked a bad night
to do this? As recently as February of 2012, I've noted listserv
entries that make casual reference to Solona and Webvisum.

Thanks to all for any enlightenment you can provide.

Kind regards,

you know what really stings? the fact that when a capcha is put on a page, it is visible! what's the big secret? it's only there so people on the site know it's authentic, or so it is supposed to be. my point is why do they have to make the audio for us so damn bad? why not just put it out there without all the background noise and stuff. the sighted folks can see the words or code, so why can't it be put out there in clearly audible format for us.? what's the big secret? somebody got an answer for that? i'd love to hear it!
