Prerequisite: Create user account on DeathByCaptcha portal and opt for premium plan by paying the requisite amount.

Inputs and triggers: The username and password of the DeathByCaptcha account is entered into captcha.txt file inside the Input Folder path for the test bot to run. For production releases. you may want to use secured credential vault. To trigger the sample bot, just run the ResolveTextCaptcha-AutomationAnywhere.atmx after providing the required details and watch the bot run.
