Description: ------------ For a better CAPTCHA, I think calling Text_Password::create($len, 'unpronounceable', 'alphanumeric'); would be a better choice (might want to pass list of non-ambiguous numbers/letters, i.e. no-zeroes, O's or lowercase L's.) And better yet, why not accept a 'phraseOptions' => array() in the options passed to the Text_CAPTCHA_driver::init() function. -Philippe

I agree that passing the options is a good idea. I disagree however with defaulting to unpronounceable. Several websites tried this in the last few months, and most of them went back to the old system since user complained. Enabling developers to set the captcha options is a good idea, though.
