I am new to gransnet and I have a piece of technology I would like to share with you.
My eyesight is very poor these days and I find those "captha's" (the wriggly nonsense text in boxes at the foot of forms) almost impossible to read a lot of the time. I tried to listen to one and it was read out in a terrible wailing robotic voice that was possibly even harder for me to understand!
Anyway, I found some software called rumola that automatically alerts you vocally if there is a captcha on the page and then enters the required information for you at the click of a button so you don't have to try and read it or listen to anything. It works perfectly and I have never had any problems with it.
Its not totally free unfortunately but it is very cheap and reliable.
You can read about it and get a free trial here- skipinput.com
I hope some other people in the community find this helpful.
All the best.
