The alternative attribute can be input within the ‘alt text’ or ‘alt tag’ of the image element and the exact wording used depends on the context of the image as much as the content itself.
An additional benefit is that it provides a semantic description of images for search engines. This can attract additional traffic through Google Images and has a positive impact on SEO.

Not just for SEO purposes but also because blind and visually impaired people otherwise won't know what the image is for. A title attribute is not required.

Search engine can't read images that's why there we use alt tag so search engine can read "alt tag" text and when we search that related content images it show us that images.

True that. It also acts as a placeholder for image before it loads completely.

The alt attribute offers alternative info for an image if a user for several reason cannot view it since of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader.

Below example make you more clear:

<img src="smiley.gif" alt="Smiley face">

This method you can add text to the image.

Search engine does not read the images directly so in this situation add alt tags. After adding atl tags google identify this is the image, this flash file etc.
