I dont understand, what makes you think so? It seems like voice recognition of synthesized speech would be a real-time gimme.

As for randomizing the order on the tape it seems like one could produce a sufficiently "dumb" single purpose machine whose sole job in life is to listen to the tape (write it to memory or disk), then re-write it in random order. Since the "dumb" machine would have no voice recognition in it would be "safe". This seems feasible and not too expensive to me (you would not need more than one such machine per precinct.
