This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the Accessible Platform
Architectures (APA) Working Group seeking consensus to publish the
"Inaccessibility of CAPTCHA" document for a second, and we hope final, wide review.

The draft to review for this CfC is here:


This draft has undergone yet more extensive revision since our first
wide review was published early this calendar year. We received numerous
excellent comments all of which we believe we have now addressed. Of
course, the additional comments received required our Research Questions
Task Force to think even more deeply about the meaning and current
implementations of CAPTCHA Turing Tests. Thanks to the many individuals
who have provided substantive and editorial assistance in this effort.
If your name isn't listed, please advise--because we intend to thank you
formally in the publication.

Please note that no substantive nor editorial changes
will be applied during the CfC to the above URI. However, editorial work
is likely to continue on the Editor's Draft which can be found here:



This CfC is now open for objection, comment, as well as statements of
support via email. Silence will be interpreted as support, though
messages of support are certainly welcome.

We particularly welcome questions and suggested edits, though this could
delay publication. It's important we get this draft right.

If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning this
proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no later
than 23:59 (Midnight) Boston Time, Thursday 23 May.

NOTE: This Call for Consensus is being conducted in accordance with the
APA Decision Policy published at:


Thanks again to everyone who's worked to update this important document.
