It occurred to me today that CAPTCHAs must be awful for dyslexics to deal with. Can we ban them on the grounds that they hamper accessibility?

Anyone badly dyslexic, or know anyone that way who can speak for this? It also occurred to me that it might make it EASIER for them, since the letters are usually twisted etc.

  1. I’m not technically dyslexic… but half the time I can’t figure out the CAPTCHA things (and and I almost mispelled it in the process)

  2. Dude! Have you ever clicked the little wheelchair icon on the ones that have it? It is even worse for the blind! It is garbled audio and you have to type the numbers it says. Terrible…
