Using Google's speech recognition to beat Google's ReCaptcha  ↦

A little ingenuity paired with changes to ReCaptcha’s audio challenge allowed this hacker to create a Python ‘robot’ that defeats the ‘not a robot’ test with 90% accuracy. The approach is brilliant:

  1. Navigate to Google’s ReCaptcha Demo site
  2. Navigate to audio challenge for ReCaptcha
  3. Download audio challenge
  4. Submit audio challenge to Speech To Text
  5. Parse response and type answer
  6. Press submit and check if successful

The code is small enough to grok in 5-10 minutes. Love it!
