CAPTCHA - Typing cursive characters


I find it almost impossible to to type the cursive characters shown in a box ( wikipedia CAPTCHA) , typically at the end of a registration, as the first letter automatically change to upper case. Please can you suggesta solution or fix this bug in BB10. Otherwise you will have a lot of unhappy users who are unable to use registeration forms on BB10 devices.

Please help.

Backspace and then type again and it should be lower case. If that does not work, type it twice and then drop cursor in and  backspace the capital one out. Happens in many places, not just captcha.

Also.. If you look at the colour of the shift key before you type, you can choose to put it in lower or upper case before you press the letter key. I have some case-sensitive logins and have to be mindful of that quite often.
