Hi Davide,

I was pointed to your email [1] by david carlisle and your Tex converter
[2] by *Peter Krautzberger* as I have been looking into accessible math in
order to provide some practical guidnace to clients on publsihing math
content on the web
One of the issues I have come to understand in regards to presentation of
math to AT users is that MathML is only intelligible to a subset of screen
readers even when using IE + MathPlayer.
Your experimental speech output would be very useful for providing a text
translation of MathML to users of other AT, browsers and OS's

I would urge you to consider providing a similar converter for MathML and
also intergration into MathJax would be great!
Please keep up the good work.
