    An Alternative text or Alt text is used with and image that informs users about image. The Alt texts of images are important where the image is not available to the reader because they have turned off images in their web browser or are using a screen reader due to a visual impairment or when the image is not load properly.
  • Alt text or alternate text is an attribute added to an image tag in HTML. This text appears inside the image container when the image can not be displayed. It helps search engines understand what an image is about. Alternate text is also very helpful in case images on a page cannot be found.
  • I think you are looking for graphics made only by letters, signs and numbers. It is called "ASCII ART" Search for ASCII Art Generator in any Search Engine And with simbols.
  • We use alt tag attribute because search engine never read any image so if we rank our image on Google image search then we need to add alt text.
