LOLBRAID and Prashanth Kumar, Be aware that others important reasons are related to the alt attribute : for SEO and for impaired people with sight disability using screen reader. Some of the post from the answers here talk about it but few. Edit: For more details you can give a search about WAI-ARIA accessibility and SEO. https://moz.com/learn/seo/alt-text#:~:text=Alt%20text%20uses%3A&text=Adding%20alternative%20text%20to%20photos,image%20file%20cannot%20be%20loaded. https://www.lullabot.com/articles/what-heck-aria-beginners-guide-aria-accessibility

if your image fails to load then the text inside the alt attribute shows up... the only benefit of it, is to display message incase image fails to load
