Ability to set a flag on your profile to notify other players that you do not use voice chat

Online gaming can be a pretty fraught experience when impaired speech or hearing is concerned, for both sides – e.g. a gamer with hearing loss being reported or kicked out of a game or for not speaking, and an unimpaired gamer frustrated with uncommunicative team-mates.

Although it’s an issue that largely needs to be solved at game level, it would be useful to be able to set a system preference to indicate that you do not (for whatever reason – may just not like speaking online) use voice chat, and have that in some way indicated to other players.

    I do not believe that in 2017 people play a game and have to listen to content from other people who lose their heads and start speaking dirty words.
    I realize that we can not leave everyone without the option to talk because this would be like punishing a person without having done something that is painful
    when we lose the ability to be nice to each others
