In which case, like I say, a redesign would usually be best. And there are
dozens of excellent companies out there, to do just that.
If there are clear reasons for this being impractical, a retrofit is going
to have many problems to overcome. Adding a self voiceing system and/or
templated patch (a little like T.V Raman's AxsJax) is a way to work around
these issues. This is something I'd be more than happy to investigate for
you, and is something we've done before.
I'd list other design companies for a redesign, but there are so many and
I'd hate to leave anyone out.
