HTML img tag: title attribute vs. alt attribute? – Stack

No, I think alt is better because the purpose of that attribute is to provide “alternate” text in the event that the image cannot be view (whether it be that the image is missing or that the browser itself is incapable of displaying it).

They are used for different things. The alt attribute is used instead of the image. If the image can’t be shown, or (I believe) in screen readers.
The title attribute is shown along with the image, typically as a hover tooltip.
One should not be used “instead” of the other. Each should be used properly, to do the things they were designed to do.143
I’d go for both. Title will show a nice tooltip in all browsers and alt will give a description when browsing in a browser with no images.
That said, I’d love to see some stats of how many “surfers” out there going to a “store” to browse merchandise actually have images turned off or are using a browser that doesn’t support images.Beste Antwort · 55
alt and title are for different things, as already mentioned. While the title attribute will provide a tooltip, alt is also an important attribute, since it specifies text to be displayed if the image can’t be displayed. (And in some browsers, such as firefox, you’ll also see this text while the image loads).10That’s because they serve different purposes and they both should be used not just one over the other.
The “alt” is for what you guys already said, so you can see what’s the image it’s all about if the image can’t be displayed (for whatever reason), it also allows visually impaired people to understand what’s the image about.7
In my opinion should the alt text always describe what is visible in the picture, for the case that the image is not displayed.
alt = text [CS] For user agents that cannot display images, forms, or applets, this attribute specifies alternate text. The language of the alternate text is specified by the lang attribute.
I believe alt is required for strict XHTML compliance.
As others have noted, title is for tooltips (nice to have), alt is for accessibility. Nothing wrong with using both, but alt should always be there.3
No, I think alt is better because the purpose of that attribute is to provide “alternate” text in the event that the image cannot be view (whether it be that the image is missing or that the browser itself is incapable of displaying it).0The MVCFutures for ASP.NET MVC decided to do both. In fact if you provide ‘alt’ it will automatically create a ‘title’ with the same value for you.
I don’t have the source code to hand but a quick google search turned up a test case for it!0
You should not use title attribute for the img element. The reasoning behind this is quite simple:
Presumably caption information is important information that should be available to all users by default. If so present this content as text next to the image.
