Need to add "alt" text to text in page

How can I add "Alt Tags" to text.
Easy to do to images but can't figure it out on text.
As always thanks in advance!

Without intentionally picking on you, let's set a few things straight: There are no "alt tags". It's an "attribute".
You cannot add alternative content to text, as the
alt attribute is not available for textual content.
alt attribute should not be used to convey information you want in a tooltip. It should be used to provide a brief alternate textual description of the image in the event the image does not load.
For tooltips on any element, including images, use the
IE incorrectly displays the
alt content as a tooltip if there is no
title attribute present.
Make a habit of using the
title attribute whenever you do want a tooltip. Even IE handles that right.
