Anyone familiar enough with Mathematica to have come up with workarounds for the many accessibility issues that are present?
I quickly learned that the only way to work with it accessibly is through the kernel, which is fine, except that is still problematic because fractions, exponents, and a bunch of things are still not readable by Jaws or NVDA because they don't use / or ^ respectively.
Is there a config option somewhere that will make it output results in a more screen-reader friendly way?
Thanks!

I'm probably gonna get banned for this, but...

Not that I could find when I tried it. There's the command-line tool, which might be the kernel your referring to. But other than that, getting it accessible was a challenge for me.

yep.  that is the kernel.
it works great for anything that doesn't involve math, ironically enough.
