It either says link or you can have it change pitch. In fact they even have
entire sound schemes you can use. Rather than pitch, how about different
voices? Woman equals link and man equals regular with the higher pitch
indicating bold or italic and so on and so forth, you can set all of those.
I even use some stuff that let's me hear the progress bars with tones that
incrament acording to the percentage done.

Take care,

But how? If you let Windows' IE load a page and just listen to it being
read, how do you know what part of the text you're hearing is a link, and
what part is just the text of the page. What's the signal that says "I'm a
hyperlink?" How does that work?
