    Hmmm. Excellent points to consider. Thanks. Sorry I couldn't find this link earlier.

    But how do you get around the typical username/password authentication to log into one of your accounts somewhere? Wouldn't they need to be ADA compliant also? Or does a good text-to-speech reader read the text and prompt the individual to type their info?

      I have been seing services adopting the practice of offering sound files as a verification vehicle for those who can't see the image.

      I don't know of a CPAN module that implements this so far, though, so you'd have to roll your own on this one.

        Which is, of course, equally problematical for people with hearing disabilities - often the very same people who have visual disabilities :-)

      If you want to make sure you'll be ADA compliant, there's some information on creating an audio Turing test here. I responded to that thread at the bottom, but I'm not familiar with that message board and I might try creating a new thread that gets pushed to the top of the list where someone might actually see it.

      UPDATE: See the replies I got here.
