Ok, I understand. If this only blocks posting and not reading, than it is
not a very big problem. However, it is still discrimination because such a
site would be made only for the people that have no eyes health problems.
Yes you could put an email address, but usually nobody answers to that kind
of email addresses.
There are also a few sites that use an audio captcha, but not all of them
have "audio" ways that really work.

But it is much simple to answer to this type of problems saying that "I
don't care". :-(
