Dear Colleagues:

The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group, with the
strong assistance of its Research Questions Task Force (RQTF) has
published an updated draft of "Inaccessibility of CAPTCHA." This newly
revised and updated draft is available here:


We request wide review of this draft by 24 March. If reviewer comments
indicate there are still issues with this draft, we will continue
editing. On the other hand, if we have sufficiently addressed current issues with
CAPTCHA related approaches used on the web today in the
view of the preponderance of our reviewers, we will proceed to release
this draft as Version 2.0 of a document first published as a W3C Note in
2005. It is for this reason that we ask you to read this document
carefully and respond with your view by 24March.

Further details about this publication, including specific questions we
would like reviewers to address, together with instructions for
responding are provided in a blog post available here:


Please feel free to circulate this request and our draft widely.

Thanking you in advance for your time and consideration on behalf of

Janina Sajka,
APA Chair
