forms help screenreader description

Are form elements description text in the wrong place?

I've been working with some forms and something occurred to me. The "description" text always appears after the the form element throughout drupals UI.

Password
[input box]
Password must be between 8 and 10 characters and only include letters and numbers.

I don't have a lot of experience with screen readers, but the visitor would have the "help" text read to them after they've entered a password correct? Wouldn't this be a nuisance of sorts because they are getting the hint after the fact?

Is this a valid concern? I don't want to investigate a fix if this really isn't a problem.
