stupid or what! I have had this same problem on a couple of sites also, where I can't get setup with them because there is no audio captcha, but then when I try to contact them, again, a captcha with no audio version before I can tell them about the problem, so I can't tell them about it because I can't get past the captchas, now that solona is no more. ultra frustrating!

Once you have Windows 8 in place you need to register with the App store to get access to handy apps. Why I couldn't use my Windows Live account I don't know but when you register for an App store account there is a captcha on the page! Just to make life interesting there is no alternative available on the page!! Having registered, and I am still waiting for my confirmation email, you need to complete a Captcha when you log in and, you guessed it, there is no audio equivalent. In an attempt to vent my frustration I went to send an email to the App store via the 'contact us' pages. Unfortunately before you can send an email you need to enter a Captcha! All this frustration and annoyance because my wife wants Spider solitaire on my PC and Microsoft don't include games with Windows 8.
