Breaks img w3c sctandard without alternate text

What would you expect the alternate text to say? "CAPTCHA image"? Since this solution isn't accessibility-friendly, it kind of defeats the purpose of the standard, don't you think? ;)

Anyway, you can add alternate text by creating a custom template. The documentation has some info on templates.

I've posted an item in Discussions relating to accessibility.

Since I've spent a lot of time making all parts of my website accessible, it seems a shame then to prevent such users from registering...

The alt text really should say "This is a CAPTCHA image. If you are unable to view this image, please click the next link for an alternate challenge..."

Ok, fair enough :) We can continue the discussion in your thread:
