Hi Davide,

I think generating the spoken text is an interesting approach!  The 
results there seem much better than the reading out of the words within 
the <pre>.

I wonder though if your approach of making the existing math subtree 
aria-hidden="true" and inserting the equivalent spoken text in a <div> 
positioned off the page would get in the way of ATs that do know how to 
understand MathML and present it to the user.  I can't think of a good 
way around that -- feature testing for the abilities of the AT is 
impossible I guess.

(I'd love to know what the accessibility community thinks is the state 
of the art for presenting math in web pages accessibly, by the way.)
