Wages are not exactly in line with the needs of people and hence many people are thinking how to earn some additional income online. Data entry has been popular since a long time as a simple way of earning money without requiring any special skills / qualifications, but now we have another special type of data entry called as Captcha entry.
What is Captcha?
It is an acronym which stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart .Let us understand it properly. As the name suggests, it is provided to you by a machine (completely automated), and it is meant for an average human being to be solved, hence it is public. The ‘Turing’ word stands for Alan Turing, who is considered to be the father of artificial intelligence. And it is used to differentiate whether the user is an automated robot of some kind or an actual human being.
It is typically used in the form of garbled numbers and letters arranged together in a small rectangle and provided as an image. These characters when taken together may be meaningful or may not be meaningful. The goal is to type the characters (often they are case-sensitive) exactly as they appear on the screen. Since they are displayed twisted and jumbled, it is not easy for a computer program to do that, but for a literate human being it is relatively easy.
Why did the need for Captcha entry arise?
Many organizations, especially those which are into marketing, need to create a large number of accounts on websites. If you see the registration forms on such websites, most of the fields are such which can be easily fed from a table having all values (such as name, address, etc.) but many websites also put an additional Captcha field in the registration forms to make sure that the person registering is indeed an actual human being. Hence the need for Captcha entry jobs arose in the market.

Typically on must such Captcha entry websites, you have to solve each Captcha image and submit it within a few seconds. Most Captcha websites pay between $1 to $2 for every 1000 Captcha images solved. Some of them also offer downloadable software instead of working in the browser. But this is not an option for those who want to earn full-time income, because on an average, even if you have fast typing speed, understanding the characters in the image, typing them and submitting them takes at least 3-4 seconds, and there are 3600 seconds in an hour, which means you will be earning only $1 to $2 for working non-stop in that hour.
A better solution is to see when demand is high. There are websites which adjust the rate payable according to the demand for such Captchas. At certain times the rate is up and during other times the rate is low. In order to work better in Captcha entry work, one needs to have a fast Internet connection for loading and submitting so many images, and also good typing skills.
