it has been overlooked. I have seen other alternatives where it is possible
to play back the captcha as audio, but I assume that won't work with cat

Hi you are quite right, our "create account" is not friendly towards blind
people, having said that we need something like that in order to fight
spam, and anybody who has a problem creating an account can mail this help
and will get help.

You might also have noticed that neither our wiki nor our www is especially
friendly for blind people. A lot of pages uses pictures, and our menu tree
is rather dynamic (makring it harder to remember).

We are currently discussing updating/renewing both content and look/feel of
the wikie, where I will keep your posting in memory.

have a nice day
