tooltips are widgets and not part of the document text stream .. so i 
think they don't count as accessibility feature (but i might be wrong)

maybe someone else on the list knows

i wonder, as you use tex you can consider generating an additional 
document (larger fontsize, better readable fonts, inline notes, maybe 
other enhancements), pop ups etc

it'a anyway interesting to discuss how to make documents accessible 
(tagged pdf is one options but not beforehand the nicest approach)
