Is there an Alternate Text Version of Security code image for the Blind???

I am webmaster for a radio show and we recently got a request stating our "image security code" is blocking a blind person from becoming a member. Is there a way to show both the Image number and a Text of the same number for a secured log in ?

Or is there another way I can adjust some coding somewhere to allow for this ?

Thanks!
Ging...

P.S. For instance is there a way for the "title" of the image to show the image number code so the Blind can access it ? Or will this leave the site vulnerable ?

I am actually not so sure that wouldn't open up the door so to speak. You may want to consider some form of Approve Membership module such as that offered at Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Maybe then, at least registrants can be "screened" and "approved" for membership. Just a thought.

Sorry, meant to also say that you might then turn off the security code check.

Mmm a text of the number just bypasses the use for it. Mostly the security code is designed to stop robots from reading it.. unfortunately it will stop blind people too. I suggest disabling if your site is for blind users

<img src="securitycode" alt="the code" title="securitycode">

make the 'title' random but understandable for humans. that would be sufficient

Mm that's a good idea. Perhaps instead of digits, it does a literal word translation of the number.. ala
One-hundred twenty-three

Don't know how that code would work though Wink

Code:


$numbers = array(
    '1' = 'one',
    '2' = 'two',
    '3' = 'three',
    '4' = 'four',
    '5' = 'five',
    '6' = 'six',
    '7' = 'seven',
    '8' = 'eight',
    '9' = 'nine',
    '10' = 'ten',
    '20' = 'twenty',
    '30' = 'thirty',
    '40' = 'fourty',
);

$code = 23;
$str = '';
if (isset($numbers[$code[0].'0'])) {
    $str = $numbers[$code[0].'0'];
}
if (isset($numbers[$code[1]])) {
    $str .= $numbers[$code[1]];
}

echo $str;

result: twentythree

This is english specific though, for example dutch uses drie-en-twintig (three and twenty)

Well if its the standard 6 digits, you'll have to add the various other places in there...

ok so where would I place that coding if I were to use it ?

I would prefer the "title" of the image come up with the text version of number image displayed. At least then the Reader the blind person uses should pic it up.

For instance this code <img src="securitycode" alt="the code" title="securitycode"> for the image only with the "title" showing the actual image code number, what should the code look like and where should it be placed if I wanted to test it ?

I really would like to find a workable way around this keeping the security code in place.
Thanks for all the feed back.
