Description

Many websites have captchas. While it is possible to break some of them, sometimes it is not.

Ideally, we should have an API to handle a captcha when needed.
We provide the captcha image to the user, and wait for the text response.

The issues:
  • some clients are in console, while it could open a window, sometimes there is no X/qt/etc. (we can provide image as a file though)
  • deamons (like monboob) can't really interact with the user. a solution would be to have a graphical client connect to the daemon; it would pop up a window when there is a captcha to solve.

Romain also notes that some catpchas (dotclear blogs mostly, I think) are text and not images. Which is great. Also, if we want to help blind people use the web, we should handle audio captchas.

Another good news is that while some sites roll their own captchas, most use reCaptcha.
