14 Some captcha mechanisms offer a button to translate text-to-speech
15 (accessibility feature) even without a browser addon, but I don't think all
16 do.
18 You may be able to zoom in (magnify the browser window content) and still
19 retain enough clarity to see what the captcha contains. To zoom in you can
20 navigate to the main menu View > Zoom > Zoom In, or press Ctrl++, or hold the
21 control button and scroll up. You can reset the size to default with Ctrl+0.
23 Regarding Seamonkey, I expect Firefox plus Thunderbird would be a close enough
24 match in terms of functionality, but I haven't used Seamonkey in many years
25 now to know the current feature set.
