I just read a thread about this so I guess its alright to talk about its specifics on making your own here on this section, I think.
Like, anything that you should look out for when using it?
And why are the images usually distorted, is this really necessary? Is it to prevent text recognition software on images? Sometimes theyre really hard to read, on sometimes I have to reload the captcha more than 5 times.
Wikipedia says its a type of challenge-response test used in computing to ensure that the response is not generated by a computer.
I tried writing my simple first attempt at this a few weeks ago on a test page. What I did was:
Created jpeg files for every letter and gave them numeric filenames.
I then generate 8 random numbers within the limits of the filenames and display the corresponding images. I also assemble the captcha string using those, converting the numbers into letters.
Also, maybe if JS is off, tell the user to turn it on if im keeping it in JS?
