I don’t think so! I often create a btn class that gives links the padding, background color and box-shadow to look like a physical button. It would be using a div with an a tag where you SHOULD use a button element.

I found this article really interesting, and it touches on how screenreaders interact differently with links and buttons:

Nice. thanks a lot. I wanted to be sure I wasn't doing the wrong thing all along

Also I learnt a ton from the article about buttons.
