Add a Voice chat

I am writing this message to the developers with a request to add voice chat. This can diversify content and help communication between players. Perhaps this will create some chaos in crowded rooms, but it will add atmosphere.
I'll give you an example. The security officer runs after the criminal, in order to shout stop, he needs to stop and write it in the chat. Even if the player writes fast, it will still slow him down. Therefore, I ask the developers to add this feature.

Voice chat has been suggested before, and has never been added for two main reasons.

1. Microphones. You can't guarantee everyone has, or has the same quality microphone. So, while someone might have perfect quality and audio levels, someone else has an Xbox 360 microphone and blows out your eardrums.

2. Identity. There exists in the game an 'identity' system, which mechanically disguises you if you remove identifying qualities or items, like an ID or concealing your face. If you speak normally, it will say something like "Urist McHands says:". If you use a voice changer item, it'll say "Real McPerson says:". Having voice chat completely breaks this, as unless you are a professional voice actor, you will never be able to actually fool anyone. At best, people will have to pretend they think you're a different person. At worst, you'll just get killed on the spot by certain kinds of people (read: bad players).
