Thank you all for your feedback about my questions - I'm glad it
generated so much discussion!

I have a follow-up question. I know that screen readers can bring up a
list of links within a web page with a keystroke. Some websites with
graphical navigation put text navigation at the bottom, especially if
the website contains a lot of content. (e.g. www.salvationarmy.org)

Would text navigation at the bottom of each page be annoying or helpful
to a screen reader, knowing that a user can bring up the link list? Is
it considered assistive?

Thank you!
