Just throwing in a word of compassion. I had to abandon my studies because of this, a few years ago. Not being able to follow and do assignments related to phonetics was one decisive reason. All I can say is, let’s hope that someone, somewhere, someday will solve this. It shouldn’t be hard to do.
I do wish you courage, and I would be grateful if you let me know if and how you find a solution, either in private or still on this list.
