how to make voiceover announce links quickly

hi guys, I have been using my mac for some time.
While browsing on the web with safari and other browsers using voiceover, I notice that voiceover announces the text in a link after saying link, and after a little delay it says the text. For example, it says link and a little delay and then it says sign in. Compared to this, on windows i use NVDA and it reports the text in a link immediately with no delay. It would be nice and time-saving if voiceover can announce the links without delays. Is there any shortcut or workaround to this problem? Any answers/help will be appreciated. Thanks

#1 Maybe a sound?

What I do is have VO set to play a tone instead of say link. Alternatively, you can modify VO's verbosity settings so that it says the word "link" after rather than before the link in question which also helps a lot.

#2 thanks for your answer. How

thanks for your answer. How can i set voiceover to play a sound rathar than announce link. Secondly i tried to set verbosity settings to low, but then it does not tell me if the link is a heading or i visited it.

#3 Sounds instead of links

Open the VoiceOver utility and go to the verbosity category. From there, select the text tab. You'll want to find the setting what says "When encountering a link/attachment:" and change it to play tone. Hope this helps.
