I have two arts-based disability blogs and I was unaware of the problem with captchas. So many people use them to avoid spam comments. How do you avoid this? Can you recommend any sites for guidelines for making an accessible web site?
My personal response, before I go googling, is to say don’t use CAPTCHA. Don’t make your legitimate readers and commenters work harder because there are scumbags out there who spam. If your blogging software/mail host/whatever doesn’t provide you with adequate tools to filter spam, find an alternative that will.
But I also know that the spam can get unbearable to the point where you wouldn’t even know if you had legitimate comments.
So folks, what are the accessible options out there?
