    Hi Everyone,

    Please take a moment to check out our new plugin, Confident CAPTCHA: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-confident-captcha/. It's an alternative to those hard-to-read, annoying CAPTCHAs that show distorted and warped text. Confident CAPTCHA presents the user with a grid of photos and asks them to click on specific pictures to verify that they're human.

    Because it's picture-based, there's an opportunity for it to become an advertising platform in the future. Bloggers and website owners could opt to include a couple sponsored images with the CAPTCHA image grid and earn revenue.

    Please, check it out, try it on your sites, review it and vote for it. Thank you!

    There's an option to turn on an audio captcha in addition to the picture captcha to make it more accessible for visually impared users.

    wow... that does make for HUGE captcha's... is there an option to keep them as small as most of the captcha's today?

    Sorry for taking so long to reply.... I was away for a while.

    As for the question about the size, the entire image grid does not sit on the web page. The only thing that appears on the web page is a small button. When the user clicks on it, the image grid appears as a fly-out or a light box over the page. So, it's not taking up real estate on the web page.

    The images and the grid can't be made too small, or people wouldn't be able to see them very easily and the goal of this captcha is to make it easier on people while still being secure against bots. By using the fly-out and light box methods, we think that it's a strong solution (not taking up space on the page, but still being easy to see when the user is taking the test).

    Feedback is welcome. Please let me know your thoughts! :)
