I had to play with this quite a bit this year- we were not getting
very good results. We were creating the LATex with Scientific Notebook,
then ended putting it into Nemeth despite our student's preference,
because she was not able to get JAWS to read the MathML we created this
way. The MathML rendered correctly visually but did not read right with
MathPlayer or with Mozilla (Opera still has some major rendering bugs -
errors - evidently).

However, I was able to get both Read and Write and JAWS to read the the
MathML at http://golem.ph.utexas.edu/~distler/blog/

Using the itex subset of LaTex then using itextomml, you can get good
MathML. The rendering in Mozilla becomes JAWS friendly at that point
(Firefox 3.0). From the above listed page...


"Posts with this logo use MathML. To see the equations, you either need
Mozilla or a MathML plugin for IE/Win. You will also need to install
some fonts.

The posts were authored in itex (an extension of WebTeX) using the
itexToMML Text Filter plugin for MovableType (the README file). "

Hope there is other good news out there on this front!
