Colleagues:

I have again updated our CAPTCHA draft. While there may be additional
edits to perform, I believe they'd be minor editorial issues.

So, I think we have a document we should review closely and recommend to
APA to publish for wide review.

While rawgit is going away, for now the current draft of this documents is available at this URI:

https://raw.githack.com/w3c/apa/js-captcha/captcha/index.html

Summary of Edits

Added a paragraph about non English audio CAPTIONs.

Edited language referring to Recaptcha significantly.

Added a reference to Estonia's E-Residency program in the certificates
section.

Added the observation that a non English user must not only recognize
non English characters, but possess the technology (or sophistication)
to correctly transcribe those chars in the form field.

Other minor edits--perhaps a dozen or so.

IMPORTANT: Please note the comment we should dispose of following
the first paragraph in the Security Effectiveness section that reads:

   It is unclear from the article titles in those references that they
   relate to OCR, the subject of the sentence.

Do the cited research publications indeed discuss OCR? Are we
comfortable this assertion is accurate?

Best,

Janina

I'd keep the traditional visual captcha as first, then move audio based CAPTCHA second, the reCAPTCHA third and then logic puzzle fourth, then the rest as is. I'm not personally worried about the order but based on the conversations this would better reflect the level of interest.
