suggestion for easy and simplistic CAPTCHA form


Does anyone have a recommendation for a solid, easy, and clean-looking CAPTCHA element that can be added to a form easily?

How about Kitten Auth?

I'm sick of Captcha. There's an arms race between Spammers and Text Recognition. It's getting to the point where people can't even tell what those characters are.

Kitten Auth is an alternative. It's very easy for Human beings to tell which image is a kitten and still quite hard for an automated program to tell which image is a kitten. (Doesn't work with screen readers)

Thanks Michael but the person I am working for and is paying me really is stuck on CAPTCHA's and I've never had to hand-code one in -

I am using this one at her request https://code.google.com/p/cool-php-captcha/downloads/detail?name=cool-php-captcha-0.3.1.zip

and am needing to add it into the existing form - I have it all in the code however it accepts incorrect words so I don't think it's connected right.
