Well, today I'm going to share a small, but helpful tip, that if used, will hopefully save you a bit of time as you continue to traverse the web: You only have to enter one of the two words. The second word is completely unknown to reCAPTCHA and it will accept any valid character instead (for instance "a").
The false word is quickly discernible to the trained eye, as there are a plenty of common identifiers, which I am going to teach you now.
Let us begin!
First, know this: The known, required words are always formatted identically; take a moment to familiarize yourself with their appearance:
These 'true' words (though they are not actually words at all!) all share the same font, size, and are always more or less vertically centered on the CAPTCHA screen. As you can see above, the only ways that they vary are that the first letter is sometimes capitalized, the number of letters range between 6 and 8, and they can appear on either the left side or the right side of the screen.
Now, I will show you the many attributes that guarantee a fake.
These highlighted items do not need to be entered:
Any items containing numbers, including roman numerals:
Any names or words, whether in English or any other language:
Words that feature any punctuation, or accents:
As well as any variation from the standard format of the 'true' words (as seen above), including words that are...
Unusually big, or small:
Remarkably low, or high:
reCAPTCHA improves the process of digitizing books by sending words that cannot be read by computers to the Web in the form of CAPTCHAs for humans to decipher"
