Re: JAWS 13 and Captcha



No, don't depend on it. Listed to the podcast and you'll understand why even
Eric Damrey is skeptical on how well it might work. Even humans have trouble
reading the characters, so OCR will most likely fail.

After all, the whole point of captcha is to defeat on-screen OCR.

Subject: JAWS 13 and Captcha

Just heard about JAWS 13 and its OCR feature. Can that be used to solve
captchas? Just curious. Looking forward to checking out 13 but I don't
know if I want to mess around with the beta just yet.
