Another Captcha solving solution exists for Firefox users. Webvisum.com offers visually impaired users the chance to solve captchas without sighted assistance. According to the website, some of the features are • Community driven tagging and page enhancements. • Automated and instant CAPTCHA image solving, sign up to web sites and make forum posts and blog comments without asking for help! • Built in helper functions for easier page navigation and less confusion. • Numerous under the hood page tweaks designed to help screen reader users. • Visually Impaired users benefit from features such as high contrast page viewing, link and focus highlighting, and more. The service is available in English, German, Russian, Italian, Slovak, Bulgarian, Dutch, Croatian, Romanian, Portuguese, Turkish and Spanish. To use the service, you have to have an invitation, which can be gained in two ways:
Request an invitation on the website by providing your name, email address, and a comment so you can prove that a human is making the request. The other way to gain an invite is to ask your friends who use the service already to email an invite code to you.
Next, create an account, which requires the invitation code to be entered. Then install the add on in Firefox. The service is relatively easy to use. Note that there is a limit to how many captchas can be solved a day because spammers have discovered the service.
I use it under Linux with Firefox, though I turn off all the other page modification and enhancement features as they often get in the way more than they help and can seriously slow down certain web pages, e.g. Google.
