the only way I can get any of these to go through is to click on all of the street sign ones, get to the one that says click on cars or store fronts until they are gone-do that and then wait about 10 seconds before I hit submit. some are going through that way, not sure if it will work for everyone else though. I know it's b.s. I already don't win anything anymore and now it's taking me way longer to just lose

Same here
They're so difficult to discern from the pics. I would do audio, but I'm hearing impaired and I don't think they offer 'closed captions' on these pictures.

So NOT only did I complete a dozen or so in a row and it didn't work...now I'm getting a message that google is blocking me because of automated attempts. WTF?

Still broke this morning. Using audio has actually worked pretty well for me, definitely faster than the picture loading.

Still getting the bot message so I am amusing myself by typing creative insults into the text box. Proving I am not a bot by the creativity and variety of my insults.

Oh my goodness, Plazamama, you made me chuckle! I will confess that I have the mouth of a drunken sailor at times...I just control myself amongst all of the very nice people on OLS. You're a sweetheart! ;-)

Same here. I am also hearing impaired, and these fading-out, impossible Captchas are so annoying...and downright discrimination against anyone who doesn't have perfect eyesight and perfect hearing!

Argh. :rolleyes

For the past two days ReCaptcha has not been working for me. The images either disappear or in the case of the street signs (the only once that actually select) they never register as correct. Then when trying the audio option i get "you are sending automated queries" Please, everyone, post to their google forum https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/recaptcha There is also a twitter page for @recaptcha They need to realize just how many people are being plagued with this foolish crap.

I have been relentless posting multiple complaints. If only the companies using their crapola program new what an aggrevating experience they are causing their potential customers and they complained this wouldn;t be happening.

I messaged one sponsor on FB because I didn't even get the opportunity to do the captcha because an immediate pop up appeared telling me my computer was sending automated queries! They said do the usual with my computer.. then send a screenshot.. well, today, I'm getting the picture captchas to do.. but of course.. they aren't going through.. so I can't send a screenshot of the other problem!

I used Twitter to respond to Google and no response. For the past three days, trying to click on 10 to 12 pictures is such a waste of time. I have quit entering hoping they will fix it.
