Easy to set up.

It just works

This thing just works. It seems pretty simple so maybe it's circumventable by a robot, but since I have to approve comments and logins all I'm concerned about is saving some work. And this one enables me to do that. So far no incompatibilities with other plugins, which I REALLY appreciate.

A Must Have! It's on all my websites!

There's a lot of spam and protection plugins available and unfortunately the only way I could get through them was to experience them myself. There's an old wise saying that says it's better to learn from another's mistakes than to pin on the ribbon yourself. Trust me, this is the best spam catcher out there with the least amount of "issues" once installed.

Do other ones work? Yes. But do other plugins work flawlessly without issues? NO! This is by far one of the best plugins and it just simply "works"! When you're juggling a lot of projects, business, clients, etc.. The last thing you have time for is constantly babysitting a plugin. Load this one, and it just works! Load some of the others and you'll get the same badge of experience I did!

Must have if you running BuddyPress and BBPress

Good work. :)

Not great with screen readers
By , for WP 4.3

Example: I'm using Apple's Voiceover. I arrive at the login form, and enter my user name and password. Since I can't see the screen, I have no idea there is a captcha beneath the password field, so I go ahead and hit enter. The form submits, and obviously doesn't work, since I didn't answer the captcha. I'm thrown right back to the "enter username" field, and no error message is read to me at all. I assume I typed my password incorrectly, and try again. Later, rinse repeat. I try a third time, fail a third time, and let locked out, for too many attempts, having never realized there was a captcha at all.

Example two: I'm using Apple's Voiceover. I arrive at the login form, and enter my user name and password. I navigate down to the captcha, by luck, and am read the reasonably labeled captcha (2x2 = ). I make a mistake, and enter 5, and submit the form. I'm bounced back to the login form, of course, to try again, but I'm not read the error message. Instead, my keyboard focus remains in the captcha field, and I'm just read a new captcha, which I answer....... but unbeknownst to me, my username and password have been removed from the other two fields. So, when I submit the form this time, even with the right answer, it of course doesn't work.... and I'm brought back again, still with no error messages read..... Lather rise repeat.

Try getting the errors announced with an aria-live region, and, if user/pass are going to be removed when you fail the captcha, put the keyboard focus back up at the top, so I can fill in all the fields again.

(The five stars in this review is a mistake, that I can't seem to edit.)
