Add support for reading mathematical formulas.

It is good that Audemic skips Mathematical Formulae instead of just saying the characters, but It is missing important information. It would be great to add support for reading mathematical formulas.

I agree, this is something I have actually been looking for. All TTS apps struggle with this. If this was implemented, it would really set this app apart from the rest (seems like a hard problem if no one has figured out a solution yet). Formulas are very important in my research and it is essential for understanding what is going on.

If you are able to get the formulas as text, I recommend spending some time/effort/money on building a dataset of the textual natural language version of the formula, then fine-tuning a language model for this task.

As users already have to wait a decent amount of time for the audio to render in your app, whats a couple extra seconds? However, you should probably work on this latency issue because I was quite shocked how long it took the first time I used the app.
