Captcha is a computer program or system intended to distinguish human from machine input, typically as a way of thwarting spam and automated extraction of data from websites.
Handling captcha with an automation tool is always a challenge as the purpose of Captcha is to avoid Bots, hence 100% automation is not possible if there is a captcha and human intervention is unavoidable.
With LEAPWORK, users can try automating captcha with the help of Image and Text Recognition blocks(i.e OCR - Optical Character Recognition) if the captcha to be read is a simple plain alphanumeric text in the plain English language along with the numbers. But to achieve this scenario, LEAPWORK users have to consider a few factors such as:
1. Image Background
2. Image Clarity
3. Font size
4. Font type
Note: Please make sure that while trying to automate captcha with OCR blocks in LEAPWORK, the best practices for Image and Text Recognition building blocks should be followed.
