Hi John,

I already know there is already an example in Steve's doc as I requested it in
the first place in Bug 9169.

The whole point is that the Steve's document and HTML5 are in conflict. This
bug has NOT been fixed in HTML5 proper.

I am marking this bug as TrackerRequest to escalate it to an ISSUE.  

Suggested tracker title: Provide a CAPTCHA example that is in accord with WCAG
2 or Defer to "HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives"

Tracker Description: 

Currently HTML5 Spec has an example:

<label>What does this image say?
<img src="captcha.cgi?id=8934" title="CAPTCHA">
<input type=text name=captcha></label>
(If you cannot see the image, you can use an <a
href="?audio">audio</a> test instead.)</p>
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/CR/embedded-content-0.html#unknown-images

A text alternative for this example is missing. It needs an alt attribute.
Please provide one in HTML5 proper so that it is that is in accord with WCAG 2
or REMOVE the example completely and link to "HTML5: Techniques for providing
useful text alternatives": http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/#captcha as a
CAPTCHA example has be added there per bug 9169
