Hello! There is a version of this design pattern in use on where the user is shown the email address then entered and asked to click a 'confirm and continue' button - rather than being asked to re-input their email address and a script on the page comparing the two entries to determine if both addresses are identical so that a 'continue' button becomes clickable.

I completely understand that the pattern is easier to use. My concern is that it may not ensure that an accurate email address has been entered as effectively as the double-input-and-compare method.

The service I am working on creates a risk if the individual attempting to validate themselves cannot do so quickly and accurately.

Does anyone have experience and / or research data in implementing the pattern for a service where it is critical that an individual can quickly and accurately validate themselves?
