When I was a graduate student many moons ago, I read research journal
articles onto tape for a blind mathematician.

I have to disagree that inserting audible parentheses isn't necessary. It
may be clumsy, but most of audible mathematics is clumsy. There are, I
think, few alternatives, short of using something akin to (reverse) Polish
notation, for some folks.
