CAPTCHA FAIL

While leaving a comment at another blog, which is written only in the English language, I was required to enter a CAPTCHA. This was part of the CAPTCHA I was required to enter:

What does this say?

FAIL.

The first word was “ipWein” (see update), but what is the second? Now, since I only speak English, I chose a new CAPTCHA (which was fine). But this got me wondering; what exactly is the second word? (Since this is a CAPTCHA, it’s possible that this is no word in particular and instead is just a string of abugida characters.) It’s obviously written in some Indian script. To me, it looks like it’s probably Telugu, but it might possibly be Malayalam. Distorted Sinhala or Burmese are much less likely possibilities. So, if any of my readers happen to know what the second word is, please let know. Thank you.

Update: This post originally displayed the whole CAPTCHA, but I cropped the image to remove any possibly trademarked parts of the screenshot. A picture of text alone has no interface/form, and therefore displays nothing trademarkable.

  1. Holy weird letters, Batman. Do keyboards even exist with keys like that? You’d think CAPTCHAs would at least be language-sensitive or something …

    (PS – You can register with Disqus and avoid CAPTCHAs altogether. :P)

    • Maybe in India.

      As for registering at more websites, I prefer to do that as little as possible. But thank you for the suggestion.
