One thing you can do is generate worksheets through Microsoft's Education Labs - http://www.educationlabs.com/projects/MathWorksheetGenerator/Pages/default.aspx The second step is to turn it into a DAISY book in Word.

It works great with the exception of numerals with zeros. What happens then is the first digit and the zero are read as two separate numerals instead of as a two digit number. (ie., twenty is read as two zero) You can generate as many math problems as you want and then weed out the ones that are incorrect. You can listen to them read aloud in gh's Read Hear.
