How do I enter the characters in the picture?

We ask you to enter the letters and numbers in a picture when we need to make sure that a person, not an automated program, is using our system. The characters are drawn so that it's possible for a person to recognize them, but very difficult for a program to. This helps us prevent spam and automated programs from using our system.

To enter the characters

Look at the characters and enter what you see in the box.

-or-

To hear characters spoken, click Audio, click the audio icon, and then enter the characters you hear in the box.

To see or hear a different set of characters, click New, click the refresh icon.

Notes

The letters aren't case-sensitive, so you can type them as either uppercase or lowercase.

Don't type spaces between the characters.

If you type the characters incorrectly, click the reload icon to see or hear a new set of characters.
