Web form protection against spambots
Web form visual appearance
Although the code changes significantly, Web Form Anti-Spam makes protected forms appear exactly as if they were without protection. Website visitors will therefore never notice the difference.
CAPTCHA requires not only the input of an additional verification code, but also requires visitors to recognize blurred, colored and distorted digits and letters (as shown below). Such web forms look markedly different, while unprotected and colored graphics may conflict with a website design and color scheme, breaking up the web designer’s work.
CAPTCHA may be a problem when using an Internet browser with disabled images (ie when saving bandwidth and/or traffic). In such cases, the CAPTCHA code image will not be displayed, which inconveniences the user and requires the browser image function to be constantly enabled.
Web form accessibility
Because Web Form Anti-Spam creates web forms with their original look, they can be read by screen reader software and narrated. Although the majority of CAPTCHA web forms can also be read using screen reader software, the actual CAPTCHA code image cannot be read. This means that the web form is rendered useless for visually impaired people.
