Hi, this comes from IG but I thought I'd ask the group. As far as I
understand links inside different table cells are visually distinct, but what
happens when a screen reader runs into them and it isn't smart enough to peel
table cells apart? Do most screen readers now have the ability to insert
something before each link, and is this checkpoint still in force?

If a series of links are created in separate table
cells do they still need to be separated by non-link
printable characters?

TIA
