Not Applicable

No <img>, <area>, <object> with a "type" attribute equals to "image", <embed> with a type attribute equals to image, <canvas> or <svg> identified as a CAPTCHA has been found on the page (Set2 AND Set4 AND Set6 AND Set8 AND Set10 AND Set12 are empty)

Pre-qualified

At least one <img>, <area>, <object> with a "type" attribute equals to "image", <embed> with a type attribute equals to image, <canvas> or <svg> identified as a CAPTCHA has been found on the page (Set2 OR Set4 OR Set6 OR Set8 OR Set10 OR Set12 is not empty)

  • on one attribute of the element
  • or within the text of the element
  • or on one attribute of one parent of the element
  • or within the text of one parent of the element
  • or on one attribute of a sibling of the element
  • or within the text of a sibling of the element
