Hi Jennifer,

We have an Outreach Department that serves patrons that cannot read printed materials. We consulted them and their patrons before implementing reCAPTCHA. They found the audio CAPTCHA available with reCAPTCHA to be acceptable and had no trouble using JAWS or Window Eyes (the two screen readers most commonly in use here) with it.

The cooperative digitization aspect of reCAPTCHA is definitely appealing, but I'd encourage everyone to consider the accessibility of captchas before implementing them: http://www.w3.org/TR/turingtest/.
