(This is a marginal topic for me.)

Overall, I think the idea is to translate LaTeX to HTML and
use HTML tools for the visually disabled.  In this the
handling of math is critical.  I'm marginally aware of work
done by the tex4ht folk and by Design Science.

Here are some google search strings I would recommend:

(1) site:dessci.com visually impaired

(2) tex4ht visually impaired

This article by two visually impaired students may be useful:
"LaTeX: What Is It and Why Do We Need It?"
