Is using a Latin-alphabet captcha accessible across languages/character sets?

I'm designing a site which will hopefully deal with people worldwide, across a ton of languages and alphabets. Is it realistic to use an out-of-the-box captcha solution, even though they're all based on the Latin alphabet? Are the characters universally recognizable? Easy to enter on everyone's keyboard?
I don't think the site is going to be spam central or anything, and I'll gladly strip it down to numbers-only to give bots a little road bump, I'd just rather have a little protection in place rather than nothing. Alternatives I've come across (math equations, 'common sense' questions) mostly seem silly or more trouble than they're worth, but I'm open to suggestions.
