Betfair impose a bet submission delay on all In-Play markets. No software can circumvent this.

As The Geek says (but in a little more detail) everything has a submission delay when it's inplay but not everything has the same time delay, UK horses for instance is 1sec, most of the other UK stuff like football is 5 I believe, I'm pretty sure when I've traded on the Spanish footy it's been 8 seconds.

I recently asked BF helpline why soccer delay times vary, they said if its a high volume turn over match, in ie Spain/italy takes about twice as long to process than say a modest turnover Championship/Div1 game in London

Not so long ago it was possible in Spain to hear the goal on the radio (digital tv has more delay)and if you were quick you had enough time to back or lay at the pre-goal odds.

Betfair noticed someone took advantage and increased delay from 5 to 8 seconds.
