The no desktop mode of Matlab is accessible via the Terminal shell program on the Mac. It is possible that Mathematica, may have a similar mode.

You could also install VMWare FUsion or Virtual box and run a WIndows guest OS as well and try things such as the Lean editor, on WIndows.
ChromeVox will read MathML web pages both on the Mac and Windows.

Thus converting the MathType MathML to a web page may be sufficient.
