Hi Annie,
How have you coded the images and links to warn viewers?
If you have you put this information in a title attribute then it may well
be that Supernova does not read this information,
I don't think Supernova has support for the title attribute (on link

with regards

Subject: [WebAIM] Supernova and alt-text

I am currently conducting an accessibility assessment on our intranet
site. I have just encountered something a bit baffling. Supernova did not
warn me that a new window was going to open. We have the links and image
links coded to warn users, which it does in JAWS. Yet in supernova, on a
mouse-over, it did not 'pop-up'. And since users do not always use both the
magnifier and reader, it is a practical issue.

Is this a supernova issue?

I would like to be able to recommend on a course of action. Thank you in
