Is there a WAI guideline that talks about recommendations for labeling
text links? I am talking about web pages that have all the actual links
labeled "more" or "link" and having the text above that link describe
the link.

I have done some searches on the WAI web page, but have not found that
section in the guidelines if such a recommendation exists.

This causes problems with users who use screen readers when they jump
from link to link with the tab key. They only hear "more", "more",
"more".., and have to read the text around the link to see what
information they will get if the link is activated.

Can you point me to the section of the guidelines that might talk about
this and give recommendations.

Have a great day.
