Thanks, I'll take a look.

I'm adding it to a <div> that contains the <math> element.  This is the 
markup I'm currently aiming for:

   <style>
     div[role="math"] > pre {
       position: absolute;
       width: 400px;
       overflow: hidden;
       left: -400px;
     }
   </style>
   <div role="math"
        aria-label="[reading of the math]"
        aria-describedby="x">
     <math ...>
       ...
     </math>
     <pre id="x">plain text, code-looking version of the math</pre>
   </div>

I'll gladly take suggestions on improving this.
