This is a CAPTCHA test. It is used to insure that a human is filling out the form, and not a computer. Forms without CAPTCHA's are susceptible to being spammed by spambot programs that search the web for forms. CAPTCHA stands for "completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart." CAPTCHA's that ask you to decipher an image of squiggly characters are often used. However, they are difficult, or impossible, for people with visual impairments to read. Therefore, we have chosen this simple question and answer method.
