Hi, Math and Jaws is a real beast, especially when you're reading someone else's work. There is ways to read accessible math ala mathtype but afaik you can't author this way. The word equation editor is also inaccessible. So it appears that math is just not high on the priority list. That said, if you are the one writing the math, there are ways to do it. Rather than using superscripts for exponents, use the ^ symbol to mark it and use () where needed to bound the exponent. subscripts ie to denote the index of a matrix are done with square brackets and fractions can be bounded using (). Also, have a look at authoring in tex IE writing the 1 half fraction as \frac{1}{2}. Duxbury can take a tex file and translate it into nemeth braille for use with an embosser or braille display. That and the results come out looking nice in print too. Sorry I can't help you with your superscript recognition issue but I'm afraid that's the tip of the iceberg if you're getting into math. Good luck.
