Hi John,

Sorry for the delay, I was very busy running up to a vacation week.

I'm sorting through the issues at the moment to generate a survey (in progress)<https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35422/wcag22-accesssible-auth-updates/>.

  1.  I'll create a PR for Jon's suggestion, although I don't think adding those style of images as a 'cognitive function test' will help overall. It will make it harder to have a clean definition, which leads to confusion.

  2.  I'm no sure what the technique for reCAPTCHA would be? We don't want to point to a particular product, whether for good or bad reasons.

  3.  The concerns about feasibility for small site owners is something we need to tackle in two ways:
     *   Request specific issues, rather than a general feeling. Without specifics it is impossible to reply.
     *   Find plugins for several comment frameworks. E.g. if we can find WebAuthN plugins for Wordpress/Drupal/.Net, that covers off a lot of the web and demonstrates there are reasonable simple solutions available.
We wouldn't add that to official documentation, but it helps to have for responses.

Kind regards,


From: Rochford, John <john.rochford@umassmed.edu>

Subject: Accessible Authentication SC Questions

Hi Alistair,

I have been following the GitHub conversation about our Accessible Authentication SC<https://github.com/w3c/wcag/labels/3.3.7%20Accessible%20Authentication>. My questions for you, so far, are the following.

  1.  Would you like me to add, to the Understanding Doc<https://w3c.github.io/wcag/understanding/accessible-authentication.html>, the proposed text Jonathan Avila provided<https://github.com/w3c/wcag/issues/1256#issuecomment-699025167> at your request<https://github.com/w3c/wcag/issues/1256#issuecomment-698431133>?
  2.  What do you think of including, as a technique, Google reCAPTCHA v3<https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/v3>?
  3.  What do you think of the concerns expressed that the SC will be a burden to owners / developers of small websites?
