    Speaking of transcribing, have you heard about the reCAPTCHA system?

    Yeah, I’ve read the proposal before. It’s a clever idea, but I think that all CAPTCHA roadblocks are fatally flawed, because, in addition to blocking bots, they also happen to block blind users and any other users who can’t make use of image-only content. I guess if one is going to use a CAPTCHA, then better to use one that does some good for the world in the process, but except in a few limited cases I think that CAPTCHAs should not be used at all.
