On line 1286 of bootstrap-tour-standalone.js, you are overwriting the popover ID. (e.g. $tip.attr('id', step.id);).

This ID is referenced by the native popover functionality to provide the "describedby" association to the popover for assistive technology.

I would recommend leaving the popover ID alone and possibly use a data attribute instead to manage identifiers.


You can add the following to the next line:
$element.attr('aria-describedby', step.id);

However, I am unsure how this update would regress.
