Pop-up Windows

Pop-up windows (new windows that are triggered automatically or when a user activates a link) can cause confusion and disorientation for all users. While screen readers typically indicate that a new window has opened, managing multiple windows can be complicated, especially for blind users. Because of the various difficulties with pop-up windows, they should generally be avoided. If pop-up windows are triggered via a link, the user should typically be informed within the link text that the link opens a new window.
