Hello Everyone,   
 
Coming up on an exciting two hour live program, we hear from a panel of technology industry experts all about CAPTCHA (visual verification) and other forms of visual authentication, accessibility challenges to existing visual verification systems, the balance between human rights and security, existing solutions for providing reasonable accomodations to visual authentication and emerging accessibility solutions.
 
We are proud to introduce our panel of experts and their primary areas of focus:
 
* Matt May from the Adobe Systems Accessibility Team will discuss his 2005 W3C note on the inaccessibility of CAPTCHA.
* Luis von Ahn from ReCAPTCHA at Carnegie Mellon University will describe their accessible solution.
* Steve Dispensa from PhoneFactor will tell us all about an innovative, telephone based two-factor authentication system.

One opinion on “Coming up on Main Menu for the week of May 28 – Current and Emerging Accessibility Solutions to Visual Verification

  1. Congratulations for your intended show. I hope it will be successful! “Luis von Ahn from ReCAPTCHA at Carnegie Mellon University will describe their accessible solution.” Hopefully he will also give a statement about a Mediawiki extension which will provide a single audio CAPTCHA to help blind and visually impaired persons interested in creating an account for Wikipedia without being addicted to sighted support:
