Yahoo doesn’t suck as bad for accessibility now.

I don’t know how new this is, but after trying to create a group to replace the less than maintained one I’ve been a member of for a while, I ran into that damnable Yahoo captcha with absolutely no audio or other alternative whatsoever. Except apparently, there is.

Hello James,

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Groups.

We appreciate your patience, James. I have verified your account, and have set it so that you should no longer encounter the word verification box when joining or creating Yahoo! Groups.

And, according to the fact I’ve managed to successfully do so, I dare say for the time being, it actually works. I now go pick my jaw up off the floor.

  1. You are not the only person that has done that. More and more people are able to do this. I ust haven’t gottenaround to request the same for me, since audio captcha is worse to handle for a deafblind person like myself.

Have an opinion?
