It may be possible to guess the structure by a lexical analysis.
However it is easier said than done :)

To be on the safe side, the instruction (now please type the second... phrase)
may be created using a captcha.

It will be easier to read a distorted instruction than to guess
whether what I see is
a "1" or "I" (capital i) or "l" (lowercase L) or "!"

However this hybrid method will lead further accessibility troubles.

Anyway, your idea is worth a try imho.
