How do you guys solve the "random question" some sites use instead of captchas?

    I've been using decaptcher for years but just now came across a site that uses random questions rather than captchas as a security measure.
    A question might look like: "What's 4 + 8?"
    Do you guys know of any service that solves these kinds of questions?

    depends on software. If you make your own / have something like ubot or other likes you can scrape the question. what is 4 + 8

    get the numbers before and after + and do the math.


    something like that. Other thing would be able to take screenshot of the picture with scr capture soft and cordinates or so or such and send it to cap service.

    Those are few ideas but impending and making it work efficiently is different story in my opinion :)

    The 4 + 8 question was just an example. The question might as well be "Who's the president of USA?" so that's why there's no way for software to solve them without human help. I like the idea of taking a snapshot of the question and sending it to the captcha service though, but I wonder if any of the captcha services accept that.

    Well, some are math equations and i think xrumer is able to solve some of those; but a lot of them are questions like "who was the producer of the movie avatar" which software can't answer, nor can captcha workers.

    There is another captcha like thing I've seen that uses images instead, or advertisement captchas.. like "click the pictures that are cats", or "what is this a picture of (a boat). Ive also seen "what is the 3rd word in the 2nd sentence at the top of this webpage?".

    You can easily handle it with ZennoPoster.
    Also you can recognize it by decaptcher and execute JS.

    I cant really imagine how they would ever solve something like this automatically. If its written graphically and is a math puzzle I find it hard to believe an auto tool will match this anytime soon.
