If you can get la tex, you might want to check out
https://github.com/derekriemer/latex-access-matrix
It can convert la tex to braille and speech (It's a bit hacky, but it might
help sometimes). Note that there's a jaws version too, but I don't know
about it very much. The program I linked to was an improvement on the
matrix browser for NVDA and a general redesign of the scripts for NVDA.
