Windows Speech Recognition (only works with Internet Explorer):
- If you want to click a link, just say the link's name: like "Badges" (on this site)
- Alternative: say "Show numbers" and the software will create a number for each item on the screen, including HTML links in Internet Explorer. Then say the number and "OK", that is: "14 OK"

Dragon NaturallySpeaking (only Internet Explorer and Firefox):
- Say "Click name of the link", e.g. "Click Badges"
In the help to Dragon, you can actually find quite a lot of relevant articles and other commands.
For Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer there is support for Gmail and Outlook.com if you want to dictate as you would in Word. Other than that, it doesn't work.
You may want to look for an extension that assigns numbers to links for browsers other than Internet Explorer. Then you could just say the number to click the link.
