On the con-call today, we started discussion on touch controls there was
split relative to biometric identification versus biometric controls so
that touch capacitive controls are considered part of 508 and how they
impact the end-user.
The language for 1194.25(d) and 1194.26(c) is the same and is as
When biometric forms of user identification or control are used, an
alternative form of identification or activation, which does not require
the user to possess particular biological characteristics, shall also be
The proposal is to remove the "or control" and "or activation" sections.
This changes the language to focus on the Biometric identification
element. The control element would then need to be integrated into the
overall controls discussion.
Thus, the new language would be:
When biometric forms of user identification are used, an alternative
form of identification, which does not require the user to possess
particular biological characteristics, shall also be provided.
Please comment and discuss...
