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