Avoid autoplaying media

Custom code
Check as complete

Videos, animations, and audio that automatically play can be confusing and stressful for people with cognitive impairments. Autoplaying media also makes it hard for people using screen readers to hear a page’s content.

Avoid auto play for all website media

Audio and video should only be initiated by a user action. This is especially important for media that lasts more than 3 seconds.
