I may be able to touch base with an voice XML expert to see what they
have figured out. He has worked through one issue I note below - the
need to authenticate using non-verbal mechanisms. Should not be
required to give passwords or privacy info out loud.
 
The rest of the items I run through are the same as visual, the
handshake needs to provide voice or tone clues if the site is using
security and need to be able to verify that it is the intended
end-point. This impacts everyone as systems are increasingly accessed
through speech UI's
 
I ran into trouble accessing a system where it required me to voice my
credentials. I was not in a private area, only option was to hang up.

	We have accessibility explicitly called out as an area we'll
get review from (section 10). I'm concerned about making any specific
commitments when we don't have the right experts to follow through. We
lost our one voice browser expert (that I knew about) a while back. So
while we're committed to incorporating review feedback on that issue
(at least in terms of accessiblity), and it's clearly in scope, I'm not
sure what addtional goal we should add that we have the ability to
follow through on. What, if anything, would you (or anyone in the WG)
propose?

	ISSUE-80: Non-visual (multiomodal) presentation of security
information
	
	http://www.w3.org/2006/WSC/Group/track/issues/80
	
	Raised by: Bruno von Niman
	On product: Note: use cases etc.
	
	The Web is increasingly accessed through speech UIs, of
considerable importance 
	to blind consumers. Chapter 2 should therefore include
non-visual presentation 
	of the security information.
