Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: SC 2.4.8 should be at higher level
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The sufficient techniques for Success Criterion 2.4.4 (level A) do not appear to preclude the use of \"more\" or \"click here\" links. All that is required is the surrounding sentence of paragraph provides a context for the link. Clearly, this could result in situations where a screen reader user is presented with a list of meaningless links when they use the common navigation technique of obtaining a list of links on the page with a keyboard shortcut.

Success Criterion 2.4.8 however does appear to use of descriptive and meaningful text links. This criterion however is at AAA Level, which given the importance of this issue to screen reader users is in my view inadequate

Proposed Change:
SC 2.4.8 should be at AA level.
