Objects can have an alternative text string associated with them. This is especially useful on browsers that cannot cope with the tag, in which case they may display the alternative text. If spoken styles are supported, the text may be read out to the user. Some browsers will also display the text as a tool-tip if the mouse is positioned over the object and remains static for a few seconds.
