All I could find for OAuth keys are these pages:
<http://twitter.com/apps/new> and

Both offer no I18n at all. The first page suggests that you may be able to  
listen the captcha words in your native language (it tells me: »Eine Reihe  
von Wörtern zuhören«, but speaks just … something I cannot understand),  
but in fact both offer English interfaces only.
Without Javascript the images are completely gone.

Since I try build websites that are as accessible as possible: Where do I  
send my users? Both pages I mentioned above are worst case scenarios –  
there has to be something better, which I just didn’t find?
