Image Describer used to be a useful NVDA add-on for this purpose until things changed.

If only Chrome did not have this feature already. You just tell it to automatically get descriptions for images that have no alt attribute specified...

Hello Shubham,

Even a few cases I believe could possibly cover all or most of the
capchas outside of google with no audio. Therefore, I believe this
would make the lives of NVDA users even better with such a feature.

I wish you the best on your project

Hello Enes,

Thank you for your interest in my project!
There has been a lot of research and work on solving captchas using
ML techniques and it is certainly possible. However, these models are
specific to the types of captchas they have been trained on and will
not work with other types. I understand that having it work in only a
few specific cases is still a big advantage. Hopefully, Google's
Captcha v3 will do away with this problem entirely, as it does not
rely on any explicit user input.
Yours is a brilliant idea nonetheless and definitely one to look into!
