A type of live region where non-essential information changes frequently.

Common usages of marquee include stock tickers and ad banners. For informing the user about the live updates in a sequential order, use the log role. The primary difference between a marquee and a log is that logs usually have a meaningful order or sequence of important content changes.

Note: Elements with the role marquee maintain the default aria-live="off".
