Images area showing the image alt text interface

When describing the image try to give as much detail as possible, this description will be read out by screen readers in order to describe your image to your users.

When an image contains words that are important to understanding the content, the description should include those words. This will allow your alternative text to play the same function on the page as the image. Note that it does not necessarily describe the visual characteristics of the image itself but must convey the same meaning as the image.
