Visual Verification: eBay May Have Implemented Audio CAPTCHA

July 27, 2006 • Darrell Shandrow Hilliker

We have received a report that eBay may have recently implemented an audio playback alternative to their CAPTCHA for use by blind and visually impaired customers. The characters are spoken with background audio to prevent recognition by scripts and other automated processes that may employ speech recognition. Blind and visually impaired eBay customers are asked to confirm this positive accessibility move on the company’s part and provide any additional information they may have on the reliability and usability of the new audio playback CAPTCHA.
