Summary of Issue: Link context determined by preceding heading?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Understanding SC 2.4.4 says contextual text may be in the heading immediately preceding the link.
But SC 80 is marked as an advisory technique
(H80: Identifying the purpose of a link using link text combined with the preceding heading element)
This appears to be inconsistent. Admittedly, only JAWS is good at announcing preceding heading without moving focus from a link.


Proposed Change:
Fix: Remove reference to 'preceding heading' for determining context in understanding doc or make H80 sufficient.
