Jason,

MathML is not an application, but a format for encoding math
expressions.  There are many existing converters from various formats to
MathML, and import/export functions in existing applications like Maple,
Mathematica and MS Word+MathType that save out MathML.

See http://www.w3.org/Math/Software/ for a listing of some of the
possibilities.  Note that there are some other projects working on
producing braille for mathematics in that list that may be of interest
to you as well.
