Buster: Captcha Solver for Humans

The term CAPTCHA stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart. Captchas exist so websites can tell humans from automated bots.

We all encounter captchas. And most of us dislike them. Many of them are annoying. They disrupt our web browsing and if we’re working, they disrupt our work. There are no magic extensions or add-ons that can automatically solve every captcha, but there is an exceptionally good one that works with Chrome, Firefox, and Edge (and similar browsers).

Buster: Captcha Solver for Humans is a free browser extension to automatically solve captchas for you. Buster won’t skip the captcha; it uses a unique method to solve them.

Most complex captchas offer audio challenges as an alternative to visual challenges. Buster uses speech recognition to solve captchas, so you don’t have to waste your time trying to solve complicated ones.

To use Buster, click on the extension’s icon at the bottom of the captcha and it will try to solve the captcha automatically.

Speech recognition is not perfect. But if Buster doesn’t solve the captcha the first time, you can try it again. Sometimes, if the captcha is simple, it may be faster for you to solve the captcha, but Buster is great when you run into one of the complex captchas that are confusing or difficult to solve.

Here’s what Buster’s developer says…

Buster is a browser extension which helps you to solve difficult captchas by completing reCAPTCHA audio challenges using speech recognition. Challenges are solved by clicking on the extension button at the bottom of the reCAPTCHA widget.

It is not guaranteed that challenges are always solved, the limitations of the technology need to be considered…

Solving more than a couple of reCAPTCHA challenges a day may lead to a temporary block, regardless of your use of the extension. Visit the wiki for more details.

Motivation

reCAPTCHA challenges remain a considerable burden on the web, delaying and often blocking our access to services and information depending on our physical and cognitive abilities, our social and cultural background, and the devices or networks we connect from.

The difficulty of captchas can be so out of balance, that sometimes they seem friendlier to bots than they are to humans.

The goal of this project is to improve our experience with captchas, by giving us easy access to solutions already utilized by automated systems…

    I guess I don’t understand why I would use this instead of just clicking the headphones and listening to the audio captcha myself. I also have speech recognition. 😉 It’s probably more reliable than software….

    It would be ideal if websites would use “enter 123” instead of these captchas. It certainly takes a human to do that.
