If you have a good idea that will help others, please explain the user benefits.

That is a yes.
Thanks for taking an interest in Thunder.

Good wishes.

Roger.

Thank you very much, Roger!

"Thunder"

I thought that we decided it should be called "Thunder Portable" - as the screen reader is called "Thunder" and it's just their own portable version which is called ThunderUSB.

Shoot, I had forgotten about

Shoot, I had forgotten about that.
I'll go change it and post the fixed version, probably within the hour.

UPDATE: done.

Permission?

From the website: "NB Please be aware that it is not permitted for anyone to modify, distribute or host the Thunder software without the express permission of Sensory Software Ltd."

If you don't have permission, this should be pulled until you obtain it. If you do have permission, you should explicitly state it similar to the way we do with all our freeware.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Confusing

There's a licence.txt file, containing the GPL v3, in the Thunder folder. Apparently that was put there by mistake??
Anyway, I don't have permission (GPL v3 shouldn't need permission, but apparently this isn't GPL at all), so I'll pull it, probably for good. This thread looks far, far more attractive, especially since NVDA is clearly GPL (stated on the homepage this time) and seems to be easier to use.
