I would rename them into something like \union and \intersection, X \cap 
Y does not make any sense.

The major problem is that texts prepared for blind to read, needs to be 
written with a blind audience in mind.

At least naming symbols in a way such that equations make sense when 
spoken, then one does not actually need to know that many symbols.
