Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

+ add another resource

You're using npm packages, so we've auto-selected Babel for you here, which we require to process imports and make it all work. If you need to use a different JavaScript preprocessor, remove the packages in the npm tab.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

Use npm Packages

We can make npm packages available for you to use in your JavaScript. We use webpack to prepare them and make them available to import. We'll also process your JavaScript with Babel.

⚠️ This feature can only be used by logged in users.

    <h1>Super Cool Motor Robots!</h1>
    <p>Welcome to my site</p>
      <li>video element's img alt not read since it's a fallback only if video isn't supported </li>
      <li>instead, aria-label + role="img" added</li>
      <li>tested in VO & NVDA</li>
    <p>CAVEAT - this is a way to make a somewhat awkward pattern a little less awkward. Depending on the video, text might be a little hard to read. Also, site owners are the best judges of whether or not the video actually needs "alt" text, or if it's just decoration. In that case, aria-hidden may be the better approach.
    <p>Having a video autoplay and loop may not be suitable for all audiences either, especially if the video has a lot going on visually and can be distracting.</p>

🕑 One or more of the npm packages you are using needs to be built. You're the first person to ever need it! We're building it right now and your preview will start updating again when it's ready.
