Don't know if it's helpful, but ATK defines these 2 events as follows:
- link-selected is an AtkHypertext signal, and it has a hyperlink index
(this would be the IA2 equivalent of Pete's suggestion to provide
- link-activated is an AtkHyperlink signal, and it does not have an
argument (doesn't need one):
(this would be the IA2 equivalent of Pete's suggestion to require
that the event should be fired from the object implementing IAHyperlink)

[Accessibility-ia2] Missing info for link activated and link selected

Carolyn MacLeod noticed that there is a problem with these two events:
IA2_EVENT_HYPERTEXT_LINK_ACTIVATED One of the links associated with the
hypertext object has been activated.
IA2_EVENT_HYPERTEXT_LINK_SELECTED One of the links associated with the
hypertext object has been selected.
1) There is no information provided to indicate which link was activated
or selected. This is because WinEvents doesn't provide event info. We
fixed a similar problem by providing IATable/IATable2::modelChange and
IAText::new/oldText. To fix this problem we either could provide
IAHyperText::activatedLink and IAHyperText::selectedLink or require that
the event should be fired from the object implementing IAHyperLink rather
than IAHyperText. Are there any issues with the latter?
2) What does it mean for a link to be selected? Is that of any use?
I am ccing the a11y group as one of the readers there may be familiar with
the second issue.
