In drafting class, they were most definitely callouts. Hence if it's an
engineering piece, I'd use that term as the prospective audience will be
able to relate.

And I don't ever recall my AA, 100% left-brained geekoid brother—he who
designed the *interferon gifrabulator*—reading a comic, ever, so I'd refrain
from referring to them as cartoon bubbles.
