This is the suggested solution, although <marquee> is not a usual case.
To achieve the effect you need to look into using JavaScript.

The other option is to avoid text which scrolls too fast for some
people, too slowly for others, forces the user to wait and work out
where the text begins, and distracts the eye when the reader is trying
to focus on some other part of the page.
