In 2.4.4. text (from which its purpose can be determined) has to be
associated with the link.   

In 2.4.8 the link text has to describe the purpose of the link

 

Sound similar. So, must ask again, what is the difference?

Can someone please explain the difference between SC 2.4.4 and SC 2.4.8.
They seem the same to me. The "How To Meet" text is essentially the same
(when "programmatically associated" is defined as someone has suggested).
