Alternative text

You can specify an alternative text for a image.
The value of the alt attribute give an alternative text for a image.

  • The intent is that replacing every image with the text of its alt attribute not change the meaning of the page.
 <img src="images/logo.png" alt="W3C">

Note: One way to think of alternative text is to think about how you would read the page containing the image to someone over the phone, without mentioning that there is an image present. Whatever you say instead of the image is typically a good start for writing the alternative text.

See also Requirements for providing text to act as an alternative for images.
