Re: [CAUTION: Suspicious Link] Page Layout / Descriptive Link Question

I set the standard at my agency to follow WCAG 2.0 Level AA plus two AAA's. One of them is SC 2.4.9 Link Purpose (Link Only) (AAA). I usually require the link text alone to be sufficient to identify the link. Finding it's context is sometimes problematic for the blind and those with limited vision. So is the aria workaround, as it only helps the blind with screen readers.

Hi All,

I am looking for guidance on the layout for this page: https://hubsupport.buffalo.edu/students/index.php.

The current layout has dozens of links to "How to (PDF)" and "Video Tutorial". We are struggling with the best way to design this page to make it accessible by providing more descriptive links.

Thanks in advance for your help.
