Captcha solving services and NVDA


Bianka Brankovic <bianka.brankovic@...>
 

Hello all,

as Webvisum, at least to my knowledge, has been discontinued, I am wondering if there are affordable captcha solving services which are accessible with NVDA?

Anny input on this is highly appreciated.

Thanks and kind regards,

Bianka

It would be helpful to know what "changing some settings" means, so that
others might try the same technique.

Hi. The one I personally use with great success is Rumola, they're very reasonably priced.

I thought Rumola was no longer available.  Maybe it still is.  You can still use Webvisum.  You need an older version of Firefox.  I won't go into details here, but if you want to use an older portable version for captchas and the browser you are currently using for other browsing, I'll give you more information.

Hello,
Rumola is not usable any more.
At least, if you search for Rumola on Google Chrome you have a page not found, and you can't solve any captcha also if you have the addon installed.
The same thing is for Captcha Begone, the extension is not available on google chrome.
The only way I found is use an old firefox version with webvisum, just only for solving captcha.

There are a number of issues here. Firstly the OCR free version that nvda used, cannot recognise the wobbly font that they used to use. The next thing is that to me at least we should encourage people to report these divisive ideas as poor practice, as it can be done by careful choice of questions instead without making the site inaccessible to people with sight issues.
Lastly I see very few of the wobbly writing or dodgy incomprehensible audio kind these days, the tend to be a far more awkward issue in that a screen may say, click on the picture with a wave in it or a house with a chimney or whatever. Unless you are very lucky you stand no chance at all no matter what you do with such devices. I imagine as is said in this thread, of Cloud based OCR is got enough to read the writing, so is the spammer it has been designed to stop.
Again as in the thread about accessibility being designed in, rather than being a bolt on, this practice should never get past the thought stage on any web site that wants people to use it.
All I can offer you is that several people I know use their smart phones and Be May Eyes to solve them. its irritating and stupid but there it is.

Something's definitely gone south in the world of Rumola.

Do a Chrome Store search on extensions for Buster.   It has some very good, and very recent, reviews and appears to deal with the new multi-panel image captchas by using AI to solve their audio option instead.   I can't say anything about it personally as I don't use it.

Rumola has gone away.  If you try to click through to the Google Web Store from the website given, which is their primary site, you get a "not found."

Since this "not found" is already reported as being persistent, I wouldn't hold out any hope for Rumola.  I actually still have the extension in my Chrome browser, but haven't had it turned on in ages.

It is if you already happen to have it installed.   I challenge you to find a way to get it on a machine that does not already have it (and I don't count using Chrome's sync function if you log in to Chrome).

I recently came across this "anticaptcha" plugin. If you install it to
Chrome, you can solve 10 captchas for free.

Clarissa,

Thank you so much for making us aware of this particular captcha solver. I will certainly give it a try. Some of the instructions on their page are not very user-friendly and, to put it politely, the English translation could use some work. However, the prices are certainly reasonable. As the blindness community is trying to wrestle with which captcha solvers are no longer available and which ones are working it occurs to me that someone needs to have a Web page with current information regarding the state of captcha solving solutions. I need to be careful whenever I begin a sentence with "someone needs to ..." because sometimes that means that maybe I'm the someone who should consider volunteering. Therefore, I happily volunteer. If anybody else knows of captcha solvers which are currently available, please reply publicly to the list and I will gather this information and will soon have a page about this set up on my personal Web site.


All the best and thank you again for letting us know about this service.



David Goldfield, Assistive Technology Specialist WWW.David-Goldfield.Com

Bianka and others,

While I haven't used these yet, as I've only been made aware of them today, I'll pass on two captcha solvers to you.


One of them is called Buster.

The other is called anti-Captcha Solver.


Again, I haven't had a chance to try them out but I hope to do so shortly. I'm also planning to add a page to my Web site listening current as well as discontinued captcha solvers as I think such a service is needed.

hello,
anticaptcha have a little problem, that the installation is not user friendly.
Google Chrome removed the extensions from its store, so the unique way is installing manually, as described in the website.
Anyway, it is a good idea and thanks for having reported it.

Buster instead is an extension that works only if captcha has some accessibility methods provided by the captcha system. It works only for example if there is the audio challenge.
So, at 90% of the time it is an unuseful extension...
