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.

    <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>
