Had a couple of complaints about the google reCAPTCHA barrier to joining the W3C Social Web CG. The great news is the W3C systems team are receptive to our feedback, and may be able to put something on their roadmap about removing CAPTCHAs altogether.
Meanwhile, they have asked for advice about robust alternatives specifically to the google reCAPTCHA they could consider. They said “We’re aware of hCaptcha but at least when our team evaluated it a few months ago, it didn’t seem to have the level of usability/accessibility we needed.”
Does anyone have any suggestions I can pass on?
