In some situations, designers may choose to lessen the visual appearance of links on a page by using shorter, repeated link text such as "read more", "Learn more" "See details" etc. 

These types of non-descriptive links are not helpful to screen reader users.

The aria-label will replace the non-descriptive link, only for screen reader users. 


<div class="mb-20">  <a href=" " class="btn btn-inverse" target="_blank" rel="noopener" aria-label="Read more about voting on November 8">Read more</a></div>
