I would simply select the text of the title and make it a link. I don't see any reason for marking it with a title style.

Subject: [Athen] Book titles that are also hyperlinks

In their syllabi, many of our faculty members want to turn their textbook titles into hyperlinks - to websites such as Amazon, where the students can buy the book.

We use MS Word documents for our syllabi. What's the best way of making these book-title/hyperlinks accessible?

My best guess is to use MS Word's Book Title style, and then make the text of the book title into a hyperlink.
For example, Disability Studies: An Interdisciplinary Introduction<https://www.amazon.com/Disability-Studies-Interdisciplinary-Introduction-Second/dp/1446280683/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1544639607&sr=8-1&keywords=Disability+Studies%3A+An+Interdisciplinary+Introduction>
Would a screen reader identify that as both a book title and a hyperlink?
Is there a better way to do it?
