Get accessibility checker to warn about links that don't have descriptive text
It would be great if the accessibility checker warned about links that have been inserted as the URL address (https://blah.com/etc/etc/etc.com) instead of being replaced by descriptive text.

I think it is more common for people to add long unreadable links to emails and documents.
I know you had no choice in how you formatted the link to the what's new page, but it is a good example, someone using a screen reader would struggle with the characters in the middle -651e08f2-0fc3-4e10-aaca-74b4a67101c1#bkmk.
Thanks for your feedback this used to exist in the Accessibility Checker, but it got removed because using the link URL as the display name of the hyperlink doesn't necessarily mean that the hyperlink isn't accessible. For example, http://www.microsoft.com is not an accessibility issue.
