It is possible to do this, but there are a number of issues involved which make hitting the right combination not so easy to discover. Here's what you'll have to do:
1) Using your Word document containing MathType equations, use the "Publish to MathPage" option in the MathType menu, and select the "MathML using...HTML+MathJax" setting. 
2) After you have exported the new web page, you will need to open it in Firefox and navigate to a math expression. While the cursor is on the expression, you will need to do a right-click, which brings up the MathJax context menu. From that menu, you will need to select "Math Settings > Math Renderer > MathML." Once you have done this one time, it will be remembered until someone changes it again.
3) Now when you read the new web page with NVDA, you should be able to hear the math and navigate just like you can in Word.

Hope that helps,

Subject: [Blindmath] MS Word, MathType, and HTML

I have a Word document with Mathtype objects in it. It reads correctly
using NVDA and MathPlayer. I would like to export this to html and still
be able to read the equations using MathPlayer in FireFox. However,
simply saving it as html does not work. I have also played a little with
the MathType option to export to a math page, but so far to no avail (it
gives me an error). Does anyone have an idea of how to do this? Thanks.
I do know that MathPlayer is working in FireFox because I have used it
on wikipedia pages.
