Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 2 F22

Description

Avoid specifying a new window as the target of a link using JavaScript.

Help

Displaying new windows without warning is very confusing to non-sighted users because some screen readers do not give any indication when new windows appear. If you cannot avoid displaying a new window, insert a warning like the following: «This link will open in a new window».
