    Please can you rephrase your question to specify the kind of captcha you want to solve. There are so many forms you can have a captcha: in images, texts, as numbers or even audio. Thanks

      Hi, thanks for the reply.

      They are images, I'm using the following PHP lib: github dot com/thiagoalessio/tesseract-ocr-for-php

      maybe the tesseract ocr engine can help you to recognize characters from images. tesseract have php wrapper, so you can use it in php class. there is a free online ocr using tesseract, you can have a try.

Well, reversing the text in CAPTCHA without the need for a human being, sounds like you want to break some security put on a site. I would not advise that because you may run into legal problems.

Anyway, this class can scan images and guess the text that is on them. It will not work for reversing all CAPTCHAs that are not about text. Even those with text may be hard to break because there is often some noise trying to obfuscate the text in the images.

Still this class can be trained to recognize text characters, even distorted ones.
