    Alt text or alternate text is an attribute added to an image tag in HTML. This text appears inside the image container when the image can not be displayed. It helps search engines understand what an image is about. Alternate text is also very helpful in case images on a page cannot be found.

    “Alt text”, sometimes called an “alt tag”, is an important consideration for accessibility, but it can also have a positive impact on your site’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Even if most of your readers will never see this ‘hidden’ information, image alt text provides websites like Google with valuable data about your content, so it can be presented to the right searchers.

    The image alt text attribute is used in HTML to describe an image's content and function. Typically, visitors will not see this text unless the images are disabled or broken. If that happens, the alt text is shown inside the image boundaries.

    ALT tags are used to describe the image or what the image is representing. One of the main purposes of ALT tags is for the benefit of visually impaired users who use screen readers when browsing. ALT tags are also used for those who surf the web with images turned off or users that have text only browsers.

    The alt attribute provides an “alternative description” for the image.This text appears inside the image container when the image can not be displayed. It helps search engines understand what an image is about.

    Under following conditions alt text will appear:
    1) If the user is visually impaired, and is using a screen reader, the screen reader will read the alt description to the user.
    2) Some users prefer to surf the web with images turned off (to save bandwidth or to minimize distraction). These users will normally see the alt description instead of the image.
    3) If an image fails to load for any reason (bad file name, connection problems), the user will usually see the alt description in place of the image.
