    I hope one day developers will have some visual impairment to realise the importance of the audio in a captcha. Off it goes!

    Hey! Some of us around here already understand the issues. Unfortunately, there are others who don't.

    Off it goes!

    Good call! :-)

    This was the last version before the audio feature was removed.

    The audio was removed because a proof of concept code CAPTCHA solving exploit was released - Security Advisory - SOS-11-007. CAPTCHA image is not involved.

    After reading this pdf, it seems like securing any audio captcha is a
    completely lost cause:
