The ALTt attribute provides alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view it because of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user is visually impaired and must use a screen reader.

Real text in the form of headings, paragraphs or captions is the best possible way to get noticed by search engines.
