Note about the reCAPTCHA Form
The reCAPTCHA form is used to prevent automated programs from submitting spam comments. To use it, just enter the words you see in the box, in order and separated by a space.
If you are not sure what the words are, either enter your best guess or click the reload button to get a new challenge.
Visually impaired users can click the audio button to hear a set of digits that can be entered instead of the visual challenge.
What is reCAPTCHA?
reCAPTCHA assists with digitizing texts written before the computer age. The words you see were taken directly from old texts that are being scanned and stored in digital format in order to preserve them and make them more accessible to the world. Since some of the words in these texts are difficult for computers to process, we are using the results of your efforts to help decipher them.
More specifically, each word that cannot be read correctly by OCR (optical character recognition) is converted to an image and used as a captcha. This is possible because most OCR programs alert you when a word cannot be read correctly.
But if a computer can’t read such a captcha, how does the system know the correct answer to the puzzle? Here’s how: Each new word that cannot be read correctly by OCR is given to a user in conjunction with another word for which the answer is already known. The user is then asked to read both words. If they solve the one for which the answer is known, the system assumes their answer is correct for the new one. The system then gives the new image to a number of other people to determine, with higher confidence, whether the original answer was correct.
