Alt text, short for "alternative text," is a description of an image that is included in the HTML code of a webpage. Alt text is important for accessibility, as it allows people with visual impairments or other disabilities to understand and interact with the content of a webpage. Alt text should describe the content and function of the image in a concise and accurate way, and it should be written with both accessibility and SEO in mind.
