Betreff: 48-Hour Call for Consensus (CfC): Publish Second CAPTCHA Wide
Review Draft


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.
