Text Captcha replaces ExpressionEngine default graphic captcha by logic-based textual questions by taking advantage of the TextCaptcha.com service.

An example of such a question might be:

Question: The 1st number from 13, 24, 24 and twenty eight is?
Answer: 13

Textual logic-based captchas mean that your captcha system will be accessible to everyone, including visually/hearing impaired visitors who use access technology to surf the web. It requires a free API key from TextCaptcha.com

I’m using this on EE 2.7.2, it works like magic. Love this.

Doesn’t seem to work in v2.3.1

Developer site doesn’t mention the extension (that I can find) nor do they use it.. they’re using reCaptcha on their site.

Seems to be no longer supported.
