Did I miss something earlier in the lesson that explained the values for arial-hidden? I can’t figure out how I was supposed to know what to use as the value to complete the exercise or what other values can be used. If I’m expected to look things up elsewhere that’s fine but I feel like I missed something because in the previous lessons the possible values were defined

You must have missed this in the lesson text above the instructions.

The third method is to hide the content semantically, hiding it from screen readers only but displaying it visually. This method is useful for displaying icons that you would rather the screen reader not detect. This can be done by setting the aria-hidden HTML attribute to 'true' :

<p class='hidden-sentence' aria-hidden='true'>This is hidden from screen readers!</p>
