Hi all, 

If anyone could tell me their thoughts on adding a title tag repeating
the content of a text-based link, I would greatly appreciate it. I
realise JAWS doesn't read out titles, but I have been told it is
helpfull for partially sighted people using a zoom text.

This being the case though, would the text on the actual link itself
not be enlarged? I realise titles are necessary for a further
description of the link, but wondering whether it is necessary to
repeat the text of the link in the title?

EG: <a href="#" title="example link">example link</a>

Would appreciate any advice.

Paul Collins
