RE: Accessible Authentication SC & CAPTCHA

Hi John,

I've replied on the github thread. A couple of key things:

  *   There are many types of CAPTCHA, there does need to be some form of CAPTCHA that is acceptable to people with cognitive impairments, even if we consider alternatives like visual/audio/cognitive as a requirement.

  *   I a bit worried that trying to add 'remembering anything' to the definition would be super-wide and catch things we don't intend.

Subject: Accessible Authentication SC & CAPTCHA

Hi Alastair (and All),

Recent discussion (GitHub Issue #1256)<> about the Accessible Authentication SC resulted in a request to clarify, in the understanding document, that the SC includes CAPTCHA. Thoughts?
