Pattern Group L. Speeding Up Your Site > Use the ALT Attribute with All Images

Use the ALT Attribute with All Images

Using the ALT attribute with all images (on IMG tags) lets customers with slow network connections see the names of images even before they have loaded (see Figure L2.7). More details on how to use the ALT attribute are provided in the SITE ACCESSIBILITY (B9) pattern.

Figure L2.7. The first screen shot here shows what a customer sees on a Web page that uses image ALT attributes as it loads. Customers can click on the links without waiting for the images to load. The second screen shot shows the same Web page without ALT attributes.
