In this paper we present an ongoing effort in the computational linguistic field to develop multilingual assistive technologies for mathematics. The approach is based on the Grammatical Framework used in combination with UMCL and semantic encodings of mathematics like OpenMath and MathML3. We review the formats for supporting alternative modalities of presentation of mathematics in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. Finally we describe a very initial prototype built using off-the-shelf speech synthesis to interface to the Sage suite of computer algebra systems.
