How does iOS deal with web sites that use captcha? Is there a way to get pass said barier with Voice over?

This is not an app store app but an app extention for safari. Never assume any app will be in the app store but do a google search for it instead.

Basically what it does is fill in the captcha for you while you are filling in the form and by the time you get there normally it is done and you can jut hit submit or next or what not.

Take care.

In recent years, every time I encountered a CAPTCHA, the site offered an audio version, and I have always been able to solve the audio version easily. It helps, though, that I have good quality speakers to hear the CAPTCHA on. I suspect it would be harder if I had to rely on the built-in speaker on either my computer or my iPad.

Of course, if your hearing isn't good, this won't be a viable solution either.

I find it laughable that CAPTCHAs continue to be used even though computers can solve them with the appropriate tools, which really defeats the purpose of a CAPTCHA. So why do sites still use them?

For some reason, I don't seem to have an option to download the extention on my iPhone, which is what I'm looking for, a way to solve captcha on the phone. I'm hearing this is only for the mac Safari, after attempting to download with Safari on my phone.

Hmm. I never deal with captchas on the ios platform. I jsut go to my mac and fill out the info because it's just easier and I have a faster processer there.

Take care.

When you run into a captcha, just double tap and hold when standing with your cursor on it. You will now get options to save or copy the image. Select to save the image. Now open TapTapSee and select library from the menu. Swipe to your last picture on the right and double tap it to send it to TapTapSee.
