“alt tag” is a commonly used abbreviation of what's actually an alt attribute on an img tag. The alt tag of any image on your site should describe what's on it. Screen readers for the blind and visually impaired will read out this text and therefore make your image accessible.

The term "ALT tag" is a common shorthand term used to refer to the ALT attribute within in the IMG tag. Any time you use an image, be sure to include an ALT tag or ALT text within the IMG tag. Doing so will provide a clear text alternative of the image for screen reader users.

Alt text (alternative text) is a word or phrase that can be inserted as an attribute in an HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) document to tell Web site viewers the nature or contents of an image. The alt text appears in a blank box that would normally contain the image.

Alt tags (also known as "alt attributes" and "alt descriptions") are HTML attributes applied to image tags to provide alternative text for search engines. Applying images to alt tags such as product photos can have a positive effect on the search engine ranking of e-commerce stores.
