Learning Paths » Accessibility » Marquees


Marquees have been declared inaccessible by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), who are responsible for developing protocols and guidelines that ensure long-term growth for the web: 
Moving content can also be a severe distraction for some people. Certain groups, particularly those with attention deficit disorders, find blinking content distracting, making it difficult for them to concentrate on other parts of the Web page. Five seconds was chosen because it is long enough to get a user's attention, but not so long that a user cannot wait out the distraction if necessary to use the page.
As a result, Edlio will no longer support or add marquees to websites.
Alternatively, you can use Homepage Widgets, Homepage Alerts, or Spotlight Messages instead.
