Use alternative text (or ‘alt text’) to give your images a short description. This description can be very helpful for visually impaired people. Or it is shown if the images on your website cannot be loaded by a user’s browser.
But note that alt text is also important for your website’s search engine optimization.
Google and other search engines make use of alt text in order to ‘read’ your images and put them into context.
Please note: Alternative text can only be added with a Start or Grow plan.
