    I like it, I also like the random question feature that VB 5 has already. It gets my vote, no harm with extra options.

    Not sure why we would need to use two options together, one good solution should suffice.

    Never really like CAPTCHA anyway, too common and often difficult to read.

    there are many scripts that claim it could pass the re-capcha.
    I suggest to use the motion capcha just to prevent bot/script access to spam my forum.
    at least I can show to the potential advertisers that my site, my forum is free from bot/script.
    99.99% real human.
    the advertisers won't put their ads in the bot crowd site.

    for an additional, I think it will be great if we can use more than one human verification option.
    for those who agree with this, please vote for this in JIRA

    I’m pretty well versed on 503 compliance, it was part of my last job and I’m aware there are screen readers and technology to help those who need it. I guess my point was, no reason to write off the OP’s idea for this reason when the script as a whole isn’t even complaint.

    They might. There are technologies to assist them. I know at least 20 people who are legally blind and use Facebook regularly. Some of them are in programming and web development. One of them is a Quality Assurance Tester for the California State University System's websites. His job is to make sure all of their websites are accessible to sightless individuals. He has less than 10% vision himself and has been legally blind since 2004. His service dog or JAWS can't help him with KeyCaptcha. There are days when I have major troubles with my mouse, I switch to the iPad when that happens. I've actually never been able to solve a keycaptcha where the system would accept it. Looks fine to me on the screen though.

    The main point though is that if CAPTCHA implementations impede people from registering, they aren't very effective. They have to get more and more difficult so they can't be solved by bots that eventually they won't be solvable by most people either. Time to rethink the paradigm.

    And the lack of accessibility in vBulletin 5 is also a sore point with me. It needs a lot more work done in that regard.

    Captcha is a rather generic term and they absolutely are still effective, at least they have been for me.
    I use KeyCaptcha and it works great. I hadn't seen this motion captcha before and I think it could be effective as well if used correctly.

    I'd suggest the OP post this over at vb.org to see if anyone wants to make a mod for it.

    The days of Captcha being effective ended in 2009.

    motion captcha to prevent spam

    I think the motion captcha is the most effective human verification to prevent spam till now
    it will be great if vb have the motion captcha as human verification as the option to prevent spam

    http://www.josscrowcroft.com/project...jquery-plugin/
    https://github.com/josscrowcroft/MotionCAPTCHA

    please integrate the motion captcha as one of the default human verification options
