I think you err in thinking it's for browsers, as David already said.
I believe that if you have a voice outputter of MathML-presentation it would make a huge load of sense to actually run the testsuite using your outputter and report the results so that it is publicly viewable as in:
This has not been done, yet, for MathPlayer's voice ability.

I believe it makes full-sense to consider if a formula encoded in MathML-presentation (or content actually) is properly rendered in voice or not.
Surely, some other tests would make "more" sense to evaluate the voice capabilities.

The testsuite is downloadable in batch, an archive of xml files in directories.
The process of building upon that batch, based on Apache Commons Jelly, is not yet made public but it is likely I'll do that soon. Ramon Eixarch of Maths4More has asked me the same already. Basically, each testing environment that is not exactly a web-browser needs to tune its output (e.g. varying xslt or outputting a different kind of document, e.g. I've done if with applets), publish it to the web then, if everything goes well, run the pages in a browser which submits the result to the test result collector (alternatively, it can directly post the result in http). At the end, the annotated table-of-contents is used to produce the above mentionned test-result table.

Interested to try it?
