I have been checking this usse for myself outside of Torn. I went so far as to go to google itself. I tried the following url:
and upon selecting for an audio challenge I received a response of correct after entering the words. Is it possible that recaptcha has changed it's return values or that Torn's implementing code is outdated? It appears the recaptcha site and processing is functioning and the issue on Torn is specific to Torn.
Thanks for actually listening.
Replication time? As I indicated, when I went directly to google it worked fine. It was still broken on Torn. About 4 a.m. Torn time it started functioning on Torn (yes, I continue to check it periodically). It is still functional now.
No, sorry. Was in the middle of a book from baenebooks.com and would have lost my place if I cleared my cache. Also, this a.m. for me I tried for over half an hour (7:45 - 8:15 EST) without any success. I think that is a difficulty issue though, not a technical one. Finally played "guess the number" to get in. They have once again changed vocabulary and number of words needed to get a correct response. Someone needs to tell them that sound is not as information dense as light.
It is very much a Torn issue. Just like a broken elevator in a Hilton is a Hilton issue for any of it's customers that are in wheelchairs. They did not manufacture the elevator, but they are ultimately responsible for it being in working order. If they made the design choice to have a ballroom, bar, gym, etc on the ground floor instead of _any_ handicapped accessible rooms, then they should have backups and alternate plans. Courts are starting to recognize that businesses on the internet have just as much responsibility to accommodate handicapped customers as their brick and mortar counterparts. Have I started getting through yet? Do you now understand what I mean when I say "responsible"?
