What are ALT Tags? And what purpose do they serve?

ALT tags are text associated with photos and graphics on a website.  The text appear while the image is downloading, if the visitor has images turned off, if if they are using a program that reads the site to them.  The ALT tags allows the visitor to know what the image is of. 

ALT tags can also assist search engines then they are indexing your site.  It is an easy way to get more of your search terms on the page.
