Dan, JAWS allows one to substitute either a different voice for links or
play a sound.  I find this to be less disconcerting.

The problem with a Wiki for those using screen readers is that as you 
listen, both WE and JFW say the word "link" every time they encounter 
one.  This means that in the paragraphs of text, you keep hearing the
"link" all the time, and frankly, it is incredibly annoying.  I refuse
use wikipedia for this reason, pages with dozens or hundreds of links 
embedded in text are a major pain to listen to.
