    Foreign Keyboards + Captcha

    Let's say you use a Captcha on your site. What do you do if a foreigner comes around and has a foreign keyboard such as the one below? I mean, do we just assume that if a person isn't familiar with our alphabet they shouldn't be signing-up to our site? The only reason I'm posting this is because I never actively thought about it before... Just wanted to share.

    This is why I love captchas that require the user to think of a response such as adding two numbers together, instead of view an image and then type text.

    I think they are screwed at this point. most keyboards include the English letters I don't think this should be an issue
