CAPTCHA Errata Proposal


This message proposes a resolution to the multi-lingual erratum brought
to our attention here:

Looking at the context of the statement which drew the above criticism,
I note that it occurs in Section 2, our discussion of Stand-Alone Solutions.
More specifically our incorrect assertion comes as we describe various
challenges attendant on audio captcha.

I think we can reasonably assume our readers will understand that many
of these same analysis also apply in the context of Section 3:
Multi-Party Approaches, though we certainly don't repeat our analysis,
nor list out our findings afresh for the Multi-Party context.

Given this I propose we publish an Errata Update to our document making
the following two edits:

1.)	We should considerqualifying our categorical assertion with the
phrase: "As of this writing."

2.)	We should add the sord "stand-alone" to our categorical

The edited paragraph in Section 2.1.2 would then read as follows:

Unfortunately, non English audio CAPTCHAs appear to be very rare indeed.
As of this writing we are aware of only one stand-alone multilingual
CAPTCHA solution provider with support for a significant number of the
world's languages."
