Hello Zac,

The command

pdftotext

converts pdf to text, usable by emacspeak.

I find the package

auctex

very useful: it is a series of macros which make writing latex easier,
and has good documentation in the emacs info files once the package is
installed.  

Also in the info files, once latex is installed, which can be invoked by:

control-h i

is a section called

* LaTeX2e: (latex).			LaTeXe help 1.6.

which summarises latex commands.  There are also many, many latex
tutorials etc. on the web.

Best regards,

Rob
