Yeah, captchas are an accessibility nightmare, especially since reCAPTCHA has had to make their image captchas more and more difficult over time as OCR software improves. I was so, so very pleased to be able to switch over to Text Captcha, and I really think it will be an overall net positive for everybody, not just screenreader users and people with low vision.

I'm looking forward to being able to offer more icon space too! I'm actually the one coding it (*gulp*) -- I've gotten the very basic part of it working and now i'm fighting with the payment system to make it possible for people to actually buy the icon slots, heh. But I'm really looking forward to being able to let people buy as many icon slots as they want. (With limits in place for performance, being conservative at first and expanding them later, blah blah disclaimercakes.)
