So far in my investigations this is a computer code fix.  Which makes the statement not wholly true.  I haven't played with my braille display on websites displaying MathML, but have done some stats homework on my iPad on a google doc using a focus40 blue.  Not a final product, but I'm reasonably pleased.

I've long been of the opinion that computer code for short hand equation work is as useful with Nemeth code serving as the formal written out proof language of choice.  The same is almost always true in print mathematics.  The work is done in a personally relevant form of shorthand, then the final product is copied and elaborated so that it can be read by anyone.

Does anyone know whether the VoiceOver team has developed new functionality or are using what is already out there?  And if the latter, what? Full MathMO to Nemeth support would be amazing, especially if it includes some of the more difficult planar issues such as matrices and spatial arithmetic.
