At this time, we do not have any customization features developed. However, as the developer, we can make changes to the product in just minutes and that's not possible with a standard physical keyboard since driver changes are a bit more difficult. It is possible, for instance, to have an off-the-shelf product for general distribution and an advanced template layout for specialists. If we can get by the first hurdle and get a generic set produced, changes for individual requirements could be generated with each order.

Is this technology flexible enough to permit a user-defined area of the tablet? I.e., one could start with something that adresses basic character needs across an area, but the specialists could add tone markings or other characters/symbols as needed for their particular work.

I think this is where we hit a barrier between the users who use the day to day orthography, and those linguists, educators, and others that need to document language faetures not inlcuded in the day to day writing.

Don's suggestion of a QWERTY layout in Anglophone regions and a AZERTY layout in Francophone regions makes sense. In some areas, esp. in public access locations, the ability to change overlays and thus change form QWERTY to AZERTY would be useful.
