Response from the Working Group
================================
The WCAG WG thanks you for your comment.  For clarification, we have decided
to add "Some CAPTCHA tasks rely on understanding written or spoken language.
Such CAPTCHAS should use the same language as the main language of the
page." at the end of the "description" section of the referenced technique
(G144).

We are also filing this issue with the Protocols and Formats Working Group
to request that this issue be further explored in the document
"Inaccessibility of CAPTCHA" <http://www.w3.org/TR/turingtest/>.
