aeh...every browser lets you do this (most of them use the TAB key).
Or did you mean "functional block" (or similar) instead of link?
Indeed, JAWS for instance lets you jump from paragraph to paragraph,
list to list, etc. My main concern with skip/go-to links however are
users without screenreader who rely on keyboard and/or switch access
(e.g. users with mobility impairments)
