Here is a sample of my hidden text link:

.hidden
{
position:absolute;
left:-625.00em;
top:auto;
width:0.06em;
height:0.06em;
overflow:hidden;
}

<a
href="http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/versions/guidelines/wcag20-guidelines.zip"><span 

class="hidden">Zip of </span>WCAG <span class="hidden">(85
KB)</span></strong></a></li>
*Take out span class="hidden" and you will see Zip and 85 KB. You will
also see "Zip of"*
**
I want to pass 3.2.4 and 2.4.4. *My boss will not allow me to show
"ZIP", "PDF", "WORD", Powerpoint" or relatd words in the text link.*

Since we are taking about hiding text links. Please take a look at
http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/navigation-mechanisms-refs.html.
G189 would require me to state the information, however C7 is suggesting
to hide a portion of the text link.

FYI: I am not using my own site for security and confidentialty purposes.

What are my options to compy with WCAG 2,  (2.4.4), (3.2.4) and satisfy
my boss by not showing the information?

     3. Can a contact link still pass 3.2.4, if the text link is hidden?

     Hidden how? And what would a user (sighted and/or using AT) perceive?
