The ruCaptcha API provides automated image recognition services for solving captcha and converting human-readable images to text. Captchas and image-to-text tasks are handled by real people. End users send an image to ruCaptcha, receive a unique ID for their task, run a loop that checks whether the task is complete, and then receive the recognition result from the server.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Natural Language Processing, Transcription, Bots, and Security. Highlights include an API for adding subtitles to video and an API for web crawler management. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
