Hey, how about an audio captcha ?

About: blind access journal: visual verification: potential new audio captcha solution

Captchas are effective measures to block bots.  Wherever a real problem of bot blocking arises we see these captchas appearing.  The problem is that visually impaired cannot see to solve these blocks and thereby are excluded from those web services.  This is not fair.  Well here is the obvious solution.  It should be just as easy to make an audio captcha as a visual captcha. 

So where are the audio captcha tools ?
