Hi Nemo,

I don't think CAPTCHA in Gujarati (gu) is a good option, not only because
current CAPTCHA images like 9bf7ca13_4229ad03a9b83341.png,
1c678215_eec3d3740f31001e.png, 10bb46b0_7bc39a5f06ec4b4c.png and many more
have incorrect signs, but also the main reason is that hardly any Gujarati
speaking person would have functionality to type Gujarati using independent
keyboard layout.

Situation of Indian scripts and especially of Gujarati, for which I can
speak with surety, is that we don't have easy keyboards available like
other scripts. Editors/users of this language use English keyboard only
even for typing Gujarati.

I would suggest to have CAPTCHA in English only for all gu wikis, if we
need, we can provide option to the users where they can opt for Gujarati
CAPTCHA. If at all, we decide to go on that line, let me know, I can assist
with words and point what is wrong (typographically) in the words currently
used for CAPTCHA.
