    The alt attribute provides alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view it (because of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader).

    One of the most cited uses of alt attributes is to provide text for visitors who can't see images in their browsers. This includes visitors using browsers that cannot display images or have image display disabled, visually impaired visitors, and those visitors who use screen readers.

    The ALT tag adds a text description to an image on a Web page.The ALT tag is included within the IMG tag. Example:<img src=“house.jpg” alt=“house description” title=“house image”>, here if house.jpg is not displayed then this alternative information 'house description' will be displayed.

    Alt tag is important for describing the image you have upload to website. It tells crawler about the image. Google cant understand read image but Google is expert in reading text. That why Alt is important for the website.
