I'll try again later; hopefully those wiki maintainers' changes will
have taken affect now ;-)

The “math problem” performs the same function and allows screen reader

So, solve the “math problem” and complete the registration (if you’ve not
already done so). Then navigate to the QA pages and edit to put your name
in the pool.****
Unfortunately, one more hoop for you to complete will be to ALSO create an
account on the Bugzilla system hosted by Freedesktop.org—I would strongly
recommend you keep these two sets of credentials in sync so you don’t
confuse yourself. ****
Create the account here:****
The Document Foundation bugs and requests are all filed under the
LibreOffice Category on the hosted service—but you’ll have access to all
product and project Categories of the bug reporting/tracking system so it
will be a little overwhelming. Just pay attention and be methodical to
make entries in the correct category. You’ll get help, but not a lot of

I have no problem with registering; but HOW when this CAPTCHA is no

Correctly completing the CAPTCHA ("Completely Automated Public Turing
test to tell Computers and Humans Apart") is your key to establishing an
account on the Wiki site maintained by the Document Foundation.
We all have to pass that test to establish an account. And then, as we
all do, you must authenticate with your personal account to make edits
or add new content to the Wiki.
Have a read of this Wikipedia site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAPTCHA
and you'll understand what the intent is.

Thanks for responding;
I've been attempting to do just that -
it states I must log-in to the wiki site ... so I attempt
to set-up an account ... each time it states there's some math question
with a blank to fill-in to prove I'm not some robot - but not finding
this, I continue on only to be sent back to the initial log-in page ???
HOW does one avoid having to sign-in to this wiki site before
being able to access the LO portion of the site ???
I've looked all over the page, but cannot locate where this
supposed question/blank is located ???
Has no one else been required to log-in to the wiki site first?
is this something new they've added? ... is there some help/contact page
to send questions - and where they will respond with an actual answer?****
