Re: why don't accessibility checkers find non-distinguishable links?

WAVE doesn't fail this as an error because there is very minimal user
impact - and that impact is hardly worse for people with disabilities
than anyone else. And the example you provided is not a WCAG AA
failure anyway because the headings provides programmatic context for
the links.

Any tool that indicates a WCAG failure for any two links with the same
text that go to different places is being very creative in its
interpretation of WCAG.
