What's the advantage of this?

karlbenson:
your helping to digitise books.

When scanning book and trying to use OCR, it is very imperfect and makes tonnes of mistakes.
So reCaptcha are using humans to translate what the letters are, as a byproduct of passing a validation test.

Marook:

karlbenson:
