I need to figure out how to get a link to open in a new window or tab but in the background so that the page the link is on, stays in the front.
Here's why. For visitors to my site, I give them an opportunity to listen to an audio explanation of what they are looking at without having to leave the page. I could just place an audio player on the page but the audio instructs them to visit additional pages. If they leave, it will interrupt the audio and for their best experience it has to keep playing. So I put the audio player on a separate background page that I want to open separately.
I don't want to complicate it either by giving additional instructions beyond, just click this link because we know visitors fall off when we add additional steps.
I appreciate your help and would love to hear your suggestions.
