Yeah, I figured.  I just thought this might allow you to concentrate
more on listening.

Not knowing anything about math in LaTeX, it seems that you are saying
that there would be _no_ spaces in these paragraphs.  Is this correct?

It wont work this way.  It works only on the current line.  If you want
it to read the whole paragraph, I can make it do that instead.

If you read sections at a time, such as lines or paragraphs, it might
work to have an auditory icon played if the section contains a whitespace
character.

Good idea.  I find that sort of thing helps me sometimes as well.
