You make sure the text is more than twice the width of the screen, then use negative translate animations to do the marquee movement.

You’ll probably want to aria-hidden all but one of them if you need to duplicate the text. Or, you could use a very clever CSS trick to “duplicate” the text using text-shadow.

Nice to see prefers-reduced-motion in there stopping the effect when it should be.
