Re: Link text used for multiple different destinations

Side note and separate consideration - the two links are perceived differently through analytics (in my experience). If you are pulling traffic reports, you have two different "pages" to worry about.

Subject: [WebAIM] Link text used for multiple different destinations

If I have a link on a page that goes to https://domain-name/folder-name/default.aspx and one that goes to https://domain-name/folder-name/ are they really perceived as two different links by screen readers, or is my evaluation tool making a fuss about nothing?
