Captcha almost impossible
19

Case sensitivity was I think the extra bit of challenge that I didn’t expect. The audio rendition was also only the first character.

I don’t see a related issue in the tracker and I’m not sure if this is local to lemmy.ml or global to all lemmys. But, first since I was able to get in, is this a problem that needs to b solved?

Edit: Created issue https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1640

This CAPTCHA is horrible! It will probably lower the number of actual people that register on the site due to frustration. Please change it!

I’ve already determined that I’m a bot. Even though I answer captchas correctly, some major sites I was on pop them up repearedly. I solve one and 3 more pop up… one after the other.

It SURE is a serious issue, as a DeafBlind person it took 8 refreshes to get a “dead” simple one that I could enter. My main issue was the contrast, it was almost impossible to tell the letters apart from the background.

Yes, agreed. I signed up at another Lemmy instance a while ago and after some five failed captcha I still was not 100% sure what it showed.

take a rest by the campfire, for you have passed the test. not many can win such a battle, but you proved yourself worthy :)

but seriously, I’m wating for the day computers solve all captchas better than us. probably they will be the ones runing the forums by then and we’ve gone back to using pigeons.
