Links can be made to work accessibly; elinks cannot. Last version of elinks I used I couldn't find any setting in it to number links. w3m runs stuff a bit differently but can be blocked by javascript on sites. The creator of the web is frustrated with the way it turned out and specifically for accessibility reasons. He wasn't blind from birth either.

That is stupid, petty and pretty much a waste of time.

Yes, isn't it wonderful ?

To the OP : both sites (and the links under "Drivers") work with
Elinks as far as I can see.

I must say, it baffles me that Lynx continues to get more
mentions than Elinks, Links and W3m together even though they
render HTML at least as well and usually better that Lynx. Or
have things changed in recent years ?
