(Resending) CAPTCHA updates recommended for WCAG

Hello, All:

Resending the following with cc to Silver Facilitators as Jeanne
indicated an interest in covering CAPTCHA guidance during a recent
conversation ...

The APA update remains as below. We will also work with Decentralized
Identifiers WG to add CAPTCHA killing use cases and requirements to
their upcoming work.


Dear AGWG Chairs:

The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group has just
published an update of W3C's 2005 Note,
"Inaccessibility of CAPTCHA." Our document refers to current WCAG
guidance, but we also believe AGWG might wish to update WCAG to incorporate our
most recent findings.

Our updated Note is the culmination of almost two years of research,
discussion, authoring, and several rounds of wide public review guided
by our Research Questions Task Force (RQTF).

Our recommendation on potential updates to WCAG are summarized in the 5
items enumerated in the "Conclusions" section of our document:


Also, Dr. Scott Hollier <scott@hollier.info>, cc'd on this message, has
graciously offered to work with AGWG on any updates to WCAG based on our
updated Note.

Thank you for your consideration.
