Two things:

Make sure you've set:

Keypad Mode: Links and Form Fields are Numbered
Show Cursor On

Then, don't tab to links. Rather, type their number on the qwerty and
press enter.

PS: You can also use up/down arrow if you do want to actually move to a
particular link. Use the Speakup 5 key to ascertain that you're on a
link if unsure.
