ALT tags

ALT tags are also named ALT attributes and are used with graphics or images of a website, because search engines cannot read images and graphics. That is why images that were inserted on the website via the tag are provided with an alternative text. On the one hand, this is useful for search engine optimization, because every image is thus indirectly noticed by the search engine and evaluated as content. On the other hand, a website is thus barrier-free, which is advantageous for the blind. Images can therefore be reproduced for the blind through programs that read the content of a website.
