Perhaps then you might consider looking at aria-label, which also conveys
the accessible name to the accessibility API:

Document about topic #1 <a href="word.doc" aria-label="Word Document
Version">, <a href="pdf.pdf" aria-label="PDF Document Version">, <a
href="other.xxx" aria-label="Other Version">.
