One other thing:  If you do want to go with the aria-describedby with  
<semantics> approach, one could also make an extension for MathJax  
that makes that possible without too much effort.  So if you want to  
generate your own representations for screen readers, MathJax can  
still be used.  Since none of your math is currently accessible anyway  
(especially the images, since the alt texts are things like "Figure  
3.6.1"), I don't see the loss in using MathJax to render the MathML.   
Should screen readers develop that handle MathML themselves, users of  
those readers could select the NativeMML output of MathJax to make  
that available to their screen readers.  Or an extension like the one  
used in the Speech Lab that I sent in my previous message could be  
used to make it available to them even when the HTML-CSS or SVG output  
is used.  Since MathJax runs in the client, these do not require  
changes to the pages themselves, just to the configuration for MathJax.
