Apologies, I messed up the @id; those markup examples should have been:

  <img alt="October Sales chart" aria-describedby="#description-link">
  <a id="description-link" href="october-sales.html">Details</a>

and

  <img alt="October Sales chart" aria-describedby="#description-link">
  <a hidden id="description-link" href="october-sales.html">Details</a>
