Technical description

Scope

Page

Decision level

Semi-Decidable

Algorithm

Selection

Set1

All the <input> tags with the "type" attribute equals to "image" and an "alt" attribute (css selector : input[alt][type=image])

Set2

All the elements of Set1 identified as a CAPTCHA (see Notes for details about CAPTCHA characterisation).

Process

Test1

For each element of Set2, raise a MessageA

MessageA : Check captcha alternative
  • code : CheckCaptchaAlternative
  • status: Pre-Qualified
  • parameter : "alt" attribute, "src" attribute, tag name, snippet
  • present in source : yes

Analysis

Not Applicable

The page has no <input> tag with an "type" attribute equals to "image" and an "alt" attribute identified as a captcha (Set2 is empty)

Pre-qualified

In all other cases

Notes

Captcha detection

An element is identified as a CAPTCHA when the "captcha" occurrence is found :

  • on one attribute of the element
  • or within the text of the element
  • or on one attribute of one parent of the element
  • or within the text of one parent of the element
  • or on one attribute of a sibling of the element
  • or within the text of a sibling of the element
