Generate PDF including MathML

Hi all,

We are use to make PDF accessible (from InDesign, Word or PDF sources),
but we are currently facing a new situation we've never had to deal with
so far, we were ask to make a few math lessons accessible. MathML seems
to be the best (if not the only) solution to make sure the math formulas
are properly rendered by screen readers. But right now, we're having
difficulties finding a way to generate a PDF including MathML. InDesign
doesn't seem to provide this kind of option (even using MathMagic, which
generated an image of the formula), the only option we have find so far
is to redo all the documents with LaTeX (they are currently InDesign and
PDF files) and use a script to export LaTeX into MathML in the PDF
export process (this part is still a little blurry for me right, I might
not be using the right vocabulary, but I did find some PDF including
proper MathML generated using that method).

I was wondering if any of you knew any other solutions.

Thanks in advanced for any input you might have on that matter.

Best regards,

David Monnehay
