I asked "Unless it's already done I need to write tools that convert MathML to text (for reading out loud) and to TeX/LaTeX (for typesetting).", and surveyed the tools I knew about.

I didn't look at it at the time because it requires XSLT 2.0, which requires significant extra work to install on Ubuntu.  But prompted by a colleague I've had a look at it again.

However, the invitingly named pmathmlascii.xsl does not convert presentation mathml to speech text.  Instead it produces 'ascii art'.  I guess the pmml2tex.xsl does produce TeX output.

David:  If your softwares does produce speech text please do speak up.
