    <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>
