Summary0030814: Captcha audio not working

Securimage includes the ability to play audio as an alternative to the visual captcha.

The way it is currently implemented in the signup page relies on Flash, but Adobe ended support for this technology on 31-Dec-2020 [2]. The latest versions of modern browsers no longer support it either [2] and the latest version of the Flash player will no longer load content on websites.

Securimage also supports HTML5 audio, but that was not implemented in MantisBT. We should switch to that.

TagsNo tags attached.

Use HTML5 instead of flash for captcha audio

Flash is no longer supported, replace use <audio> element.

For a more MantisBT UI standard look, use fontawesome icons for Play and
Refresh buttons, instead of relying on Securimage's bundled ones.

Remove the "Generate a new code", which is now redundant (captcha is
reset by clicking on it or the new Refresh button)

Add new $s_signup_captcha_play language string for tooltip and screen
reader text on Play button.
