Agreed - which is why I've been experimenting with a similar technique that
uses real links to named anchors/fragment identifiers within the same page.
Theoretically they'll get announced as "this page link" or similar.
Theoretically the browser/screen reader should also move to that spot in the
page and read from there.

I'll try to post a sample as I'd love to see some other test results beyond
the testing I've been able to do so far...

Cheers,
Derek.
