I agree.  I meant to say something sooner.  Let's not do that 
hastily.  For example, on the Link patch submitted last week, 
Vocal-Eyes and other screen readers allow you, if you wish, to 
substitute some user-specified string for a color found on the screen, 
and not announce any colors which are not in this "attribute 
dictionary".  I have a Lynx configuration set up where Link is 
inserted by the screen reader in front of links.  Nothing tells me in 
the stream of speech where the  link ends, but I can cursor through 
the links and find out quickly.  We basically need plenty of testing 
and more feedback.
