You can use table headers to meet SC 2.4.4

H79: Identifying the purpose of a link in a data table using the link text combined with its enclosing table cell and associated table header cells

Can anyone tell me why accessibility checkers would not be finding Non-distinguishable links?
Our CMS uses achecker and it doesn't find them. WAVE doesn't either. We are piloting Siteimprove and it found 143 page with them. Ugh.
