overloading help text and tooltip


I had to leave the aria call early on Monday, but i just wanted to say a word of caution about overloading help text and tooltips with information for screen reader users.
I think there should be separate place to put information for screen reader users and appose to sited users who need extra help, such as people in the COGA user groups. If they learn to rely on help text for extra assistance, and find there information for screen readers, they will be confused and will stop looking for help text or tooltips. then we are removing from these groups any scaffolding and help that may have been there.  

All the best
