Item Number: ARIA1
Part of Item: Examples
Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: Does not contain example for link context
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
ARIA1 does not include an example for links. SC 2.4.4 lists this as a sufficient technique.

Proposed Change:
Consider 
<p id="weather">What's the weather like? <a href="weather.htm" aria-describedby="weather">Click here</a></p>
Note: In this example the contextual text is read by screen readers automatically when the 
link gets focus upon tabbing to it. One does not have to additionally activate a screen 
reader specific keystroke figure out the context.
