Provide descriptions of links

This feature should provide descriptions of links by analyzing their context on the page (for example, a link that reads as “here” may be expanded to include the text before and read “Visit our online shop here”). The descriptions could alternatively be drawn from the source of the link itself, describing its title and first few lines of text. Link “previews” may also be given by showing a thumbnail image and/or reading the initial text of the next page when the link is selected or moused over.

Blindness

The destination of a link can be unclear, especially for those using screen readers to rapidly jump through link options. This feature makes it easier to determine the destination of a link.
