moderated Interesting use for picture smart


Gene Warner
 

Hi everyone!

It worked for this one but I won't guarantee that it will work for all of them.

While filling out a contact form I encountered a CAPTCHA and decided to see if picture smart could decipher what I needed to enter and for a wonder it did! While on the CAPTCHA graphic I just copied it to the clipboard and then sent it in to picture smart.

Remember that your mileage may vary.

Hi, Gene. If we're totally blind, how do we know when our cursor is on the captcha?

JAWS tells me I'm on an image, I don't know fir certain that the graphic is the CAPTCHA but the picture smart results should tell you.

Hi Gene,

That’s a very imaginative use of Picture Smart. I will try it out next time I run into an obnoxious visual CAPTCHA. As you say, results my vary. I have heard sighted people complain that some of these are not very clear visually, so I imagine that could screw things up. But certainly worth a try.

Regards,

David

Whenever I encounter a CAPTCHA I first look for an audio challenge and use that, but many CAPTCHA systems don't offer audio challenges so this is a step I try before calling for sighted assistance.

I did try CAPTCHA Be Gone by the same guy who produces QRead, but when I ran into a problem and could not get support, all my emails went unanswered, I canceled my subscription to it. I had the same problem with support for QRead and QFeed, that is why I do not recommend that anybody buy anything from him.
