Most screen readers don't read the "programmatically determined" 
context, so the accessibility problem is still there. Anyway, the link 
could contain this additional information as a visually-hidden portion 
of the link text, so screen readers will be able to access the 
information, while the visual design remains the same. This is a 
recommended technique in WCAG 2.0 [1]

Ramón.
