According to the license of NVDA,all code other than some paid
synthesizers that runs under NVDA, should be GPL v2. So it is not
necessary to obtain permission as long as you release full source
code. Joseph's message about needing
to obtain permission only applies to addons on community site.I
guess for the sake of avoiding version conflict and wasting time
of developer and reviewer.

I saw Joseph's message about
needing to obtain permission before making the add-on
compatible. This raises the question of providing, in some
sort of agreement regarding add-ons, that under specified
conditions an add-on will be considered to be in the public
domain. An add-on that is abandoned but not in the public
domain is in danger of not being updated and becoming useless
or significantly degraded as NVDA or the program it works with
Of course, the rights of those
who provide add-ons for profit should be protected but it is,
in my opinion, a serious violation of the spirit of NVDA that
an add-on can be abandoned by its developer, and still not be
able to be modified to keep it current.

this addon does not work with the latest alpha snaps. i suppose
is because it is not compatible with python3 yet? Joseph or
