I can change a certain text in span title attribute using JQuery by doing this:

$('span.js-webpart-titleCell').each(function(){
var splitTitle = $(this).attr('title').split('-');
$(this).attr('title', splitTitle[0]); 
}); 

This function works on every span with js-webpart-titleCell class, split its title attribute into two parts (before and after the dash mark), and change the title to only the first part of it.

You can change the title attribute using JavaScript as below

document.getElementsByClassName('ClassName').title = 'your new title'; 

Also, You can change the title attribute using JQuery as below

$('.classname').attr('title', 'your new title');

Hope it helps!

I also suggest the same as Nada did.

$('span.js-webpart-titleCell').each(function(){ var splitTitle =
$(this).attr('title').split('-'); $(this).attr('title',splitTitle[0]);  }); 
If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO!
