[Hpr] Note about accessibility in show notes

Hello,

If a site has only the word 'here' linked in multiple links that take
the user to lots of different resources, then navigating those links by
using the keyboard to jump from link to link, the screen reader says
"here, here, here, here, here."

But what is here?

You should make at least a sensible portion of the sentence a link so
the user using a screen reader knows what each link is, without having
to use the arrow keys to read the full sentence.
