reCAPTCHA in Radiant?


#1

Before I started work on this, I wonder whether anyone else has either
implemented a hook into reCAPTCHA and Mailhide - or some other CAPTCHA
system for blocking spam in forms or mailto links.

I’m currently using reCAPTCHA gem on Rails site. There’s a Rails plugin
too.

This project is amazing, using captchas to help digitize books!
Please do publicize anything you make with it, I would love to
incorporate it

The problem with captcha is that its not accessible… a screen reader
cannot read it… so a blind person cannot read it too. Why not puts a
simple question in text format? Like: “1 + 2” or “Where airplanes
fly?” or “A hand have five…”

Recaptcha provides an audio version for just such reasons, although
my experience with it so far has been less than stellar. It’s
obviously a big concern for them, though.
