I agree, identifying each link as "Page 1" etc makes it more difficult to
select the link from a links list ... They all begin with P instead of each
being uniquely first letter pickable by number. I'm not keen on the term
Pagination either, users are more likely to understand "Other pages" "more
results" or similar. The principle's good, but overdone.

Subject: [WebAIM] Accessible pagination?

I'm looking at this article: http://www.a11ymatters.com/pattern/pagination/

It seems like the author is suggesting extremely verbose pagination for
non-sighted users. This feels like a lot of extra noise to me, but I'm not
an AT user, so I really don't know. It seems like once you get into the
region, you'll know that the region is for pagination navigation (as per the
aria-label on the "ul" element). Is there really a need to label every one
of those "Goto Page X"? I could see an argument for "Page X", but even that
feels like unnecessary verbosity.
