As many of you are aware our CAPTCHA system was less than ideal. It was often hard to read and you never knew if the space was required, etc…
Thanks to help from the folks at Carnegie Mellon University we have been able to replace our old system with reCAPTCHA. reCAPTCHA not only helps to prevent spam and other abuses but also helps improves the process of digitizing books.
Most of the time you shouldn’t even see reCAPTCHA. Only if you enter a bad password on the login and support pages will you see reCAPTCHA.
