I would imagine not, so long as they are not used in a manner beyond being a communication tool.

You mean just a popup of who is speaking?

Should be fine, I think. I've seen loads of people using the Mumble overlay before (if and when it works)

The Steam overlays are allowed, so I can't imagine that Teamspeak/Mumble overlays aren't...

^^ this. Then again CCP does have some strange ideas at times... The way I look at it is, if it doesn't modify or input things into the client you are probably good.

A goon!! Kill it!

I've never heard of the overlays being disallowed. I've used pretty much all of them at some point, never had a problem. Usually what CCP has problems with are input automation programs and things like that.

File a ticket and ask. From what I read, as long as it does not modify the game to give you an unfair advantage your good. but the only real answer would come from a Support Ticket.

You should be good with a Teamspeak overlay.

For instance, the use of programs that provide in-game overlays (Mumble, Teamspeak) is not something we plan to actively police at this time.

This is an example of something we do NOT consider unfair, for now. This also includes other in-game overlays which do NOT grant you any unfair advantage. We do not consider it an unfair advantage if you can see who is currently talking in your voice communication tool via the means of an in-game overlay. We also do NOT consider it unfair if you use other comfort overlays which do not affect how the game is played. This includes overlays for chat and IM applications, the Steam overlay, and Web-Browser overlays for example.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
