Me old codger Matt May worked on this for like *ever*, and it's
finally done. Accessibility is a prerequisite of usability, after all.

Inaccessibility of Visually-Oriented Anti-Robot Tests

Abstract

    A common method of limiting access to services made available over the
    Web is visual verification of a bitmapped image. This presents a major
    problem to users who are blind, have low vision, or have a learning
    disability such as dyslexia. This document examines a number of
    potential solutions that allow systems to test for human users while
    preserving access by users with disabilities.
