[Blindmath] LaTeX to MathML (was IOS7 and math support)

In my CSCI classes I am experiencing a mixture of sources composed of Latex and MathType via word documents that I must read.

Jonathan, would you be willing to share your header files for converting  Latex?
Has anyone found a solution for taking word files that have MathType equations in them and converting the file to HTML with the equations being converted to MathML?

(The same comment applies if the target is braille math rather than MathML.) One major reason is that LaTeX includes a macro language. To my knowledge tex4ht is the only application which is designed to convert general LaTeX documents and even it isn't perfect.  I've never tried to use tex4ht myself but I understand using it requires some investment of time to acquire the necessary expertise.
