Description Orson Teodoro 2007-12-06 09:51:00 UTC
I find that I cannot verify myself in a text based browser because the login process requres you to read a graphical image.  This is bad for blind people.  Please offer alternative other than that visual verification.  Example of the people effected T.V. Raman blind compter scientist and google employee and many others who want to keep their username logins.  Anonymous accounts/ip accounts not affected.  Tested on elinks text browser though wikipedia.  Help make wikipedia more accessible.
