 Ie only, but a distinct step in the right direction.

Math-to-speech technology

One of the advantages of embedding math in a web page using MathML is that it makes it possible for the math to be spoken. This was always a goal in the development of MathML by the W3C in order to make math easier to understand by the visually impaired. MathPlayer 2.0 and later begins to realize that goal by providing the ability to speak the math in the web page. The user can do this by choosing Speak Expression on MathPlayer's right-click menu or, more importantly, via a screen reader application such as Window-Eyes or JAWS.
