The short answer is no.
The longer answer is that Voice Over and Safari has had MathML support in the past but there have been bugs in their implementation and I don't know the current state of things.
The student could install Windows on Boot Camp and use NVDA + Firefox...

Subject: [Athen] MathML and Voiceover for Mac


I have a Blind student who is wedded to VoiceOver on his Mac. He now is taking a Chemistry course and my research tells me that MathML is not very compatible with VoiceOver. I'm concerned with how to make the math accessible to him when he is very set on sticking with his Mac. Does anyone have any experience with VoiceOver reading math? Might it be able to read MathML adequately through Firefox?
