please keep in mind that CAPTCHA usually singles out i.e. blind users. You 
_must_ have an alternative CAPTHA mechanism besides pictures (I.e. simple 
mathematical questions in the vein of "If you have three oranges and four 
apple, you take away 2 oranges and 1 apple. How much apples have you got 
left?". Or something similar. Ok, maybe easier to process automatically than 
pictures, but with some creative wording and a spelling mistake here and 
there this could still work.

Or maybe there's better CAPTCHA mechanisms that are useful for disabled 
people, too..
