What is HTML alt Attribute?

HTML, HTML Attributes , 0 Comments

The alt attribute provides alternative information for an image if it can not be viewed by a viewer for some reason (because of a poor link, a mistake in the src attribute, or using a screen reader by the user).

The <img> tag requires the alt attribute.

In <input> elements, the alt attribute can only be used for <input type="image">.
