Since I managed to stumble upon the captcha authentication today (I managed to input the wrong password top many times) I realized that with my particular trait of color vision deficiency it's nearly impossible to pick out the letters with the color scheme in use.

So to the question, I've seen other versions of the captcha here and there that has a more "black and white" approach. Are there settings that can adjust that or something along those lines?

Not a huge deal but just a thought.

Well I know that the captcha at one of the sites I use insists on using image classification. I have to tell it which images contain road signs, cars, mountains, … or pizzas!

I've changed it - try now.

Splendid, a vast improvement. Thank you.
