TeXshop is much more accessible with VO because of the standard Coco classes used.
Also when I have reported bugs pertaining to VoiceOver the developers have been very willing to look into fixing them.

I did not look too much at that as the conversion is a one way street from what I could tell, you cannot convert back to LaTeX should you want to edit the equation.
