Alternative Text

Alternative text conveys the content of a graphical element, for example an image, as text so that it is available to assistive technologies, like screen readers.

Why Is This Important?

Some users are unable to see images and other graphical elements on the page. They need an image description that explains what is seen on the image or how it is used.
