We had one additional comment via github that resulted in an editorial
change--a clarification of wording.

So, if you agree, I think we can formally resolve on Wednesday's call to
ask APA to launch a Call for Consensus to close work on this revision
and publish the latest Editor's Draft as the revised Note.

Here's a summary of changes since the 2nd public comment review

1.)	The Internationalization Working Group provided us revised
language for one paragraph. To read this change, navigate to Sec. 2.1.2
Sound Output and move up one paragraph to the paragraph that begins
with: "While some sites have begun ..." That's the edited paragraph
provided by I18N.

2.)	I dropped four words from the beginning of Sec. 1.2 CAPTCHA
Context. I decided there was no reason to talk about large and small web
sites, so this section now begins with the words: "Web sites ..."

3.)	We were challenged that one of newer edits, one of the list
items in our revised Conclusion was unclear. I have edited that list item #2 to
now read:

    2. Whenever an interactive CAPTCHA is deemed important for security
    reasons, it is very beneficial to limit and minimize how often users
    are subjected to interactive CAPTCHA challenges. With CAPTCHA less
           interactivity is clearly more accessibility. As noted above,
	   we're encouraged by the development of approaches such as
	   Privacy Pass which, even though it still requires an
	   interactive CAPTCHA challenge at
	          times, it does so much less often.

Comments welcome.
