Proposed modified paragraph:

Broadly, compliant authenticators protect public key credentials, and interact with user agents to implement the Web Authentication API. Implementing compliant authenticators is possible
in software executing on (a) a general purpose computing device, (b) an on-device Secure Execution Environment, or a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) or a Secure Element (SE), or (d) off-device.  Authenticators being implemented on-device are called Platform Authenticators.  Authenticators being implemented off-device (Roaming Authenticators)  can be accessed over a transport such as Universal Serial Bus (USB), Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Near Field Communications (NFC).
