Hi This is david aka johnnie.

It is not necessary to add text on the screen for screen reader users if the
links are sufficiently clear.  It might help with the cognative load for
some and it might also help with other visual renderings, but I'll let
others discuss that with you.

Hello Johnnie,

Thanks a lot for your kind suggestion. It helps me very much.

May I ask you one more question?

If some descriptions to explain each area of the page, e.g. "Content
starts here" or "Navigation starts here", are provided, will it be
helpful to screen reader users? Or will it be annoying?

Since I'm not a screen reader user, I don't know how they feel, but I
want to know their opinion.
