Scrolling Text Frozen On All Pages

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://kccbd.net

Hey there! Recently, I have been loving the templates and features that can be made with the scrolling effect. After making some edits that looked great, I noticed that any scrolling text is frozen when someone is viewing the website live. Of course, when I'm editing, it magically moves as it should and I'm not sure why. I've put off asking the question for some time because I've always had this issue and found some alternative.

Thank you in advance!

Scrolling text can cause problems for users who read slowly or use assistive technology, so accessibility settings include options to stop the movement and make the text available statically.

If users are seeing static text they may want to check their accessibility settings. Sometimes these are located in the browser but they may in be device settings too. For example, on iOS you'll want to go to Settings and check that Accessibility > Motion > Reduce Motion is off.
