The captcha test image is found below but there is also a link to an alternative test.
This registration form uses information in a distorted image to prevent misuse of this service. If you have trouble seeing the image you can use our alternative audio based registration form.
The picture in the example above is an actual captcha image from the Hotmail registration process. Even I have trouble spotting the first character. Try to make sure you distort the text as little as possible.
The link to the alternative test should be a postback to preserve data that the user may have entered already. This is important if the form has many fields and the captcha image is at the end.
