Img alt tag text

Alternative text (common shorthand name 'alt tag') is a text alternative of the image for screen reader users. Alt tags will be displayed in place of an image if an image file cannot be loaded.

Screen readers for the blind and visually impaired will read out this text and thus make your image accessible.

Furthermore, Alt tags provide better image descriptions to search engine crawlers, helping them to index an image properly.
