Eitan Gurari's TeX4ht[1] can convert (La)TeX to MathML (I haven't had
to use it myself, but all I've heard about it is good), and he and
Sebastian Rahtz presented a paper at TUG00 about that and passiveTeX,
which converts in the other direction[2].

Dave Pawson (who I think has/had a connection with the RNIB) has done
work with angle-brackets and Braille.  I don't know many details
since, again, I've not had to use it, but there should be more details
at Pawson's pages[3].

Good luck,
