Voice Chat with Cataclysm

UI and Macro
I have not been about to use Voice Chat with my friend since Cata started. Solution 21524 only relates to Burning Crusade and doesn't have screenshots of Cataclysm Sound and Voice. Please help. I would really like to be able to chat with my friend as he can't type fast, lol.
Yes I use it; it's great for instant communication, especially if you don't type fast or are too busy fighting to type, lol. I've been able to use it until Cata came out.
So I know this is an old(er) thread, but I've been having the same problem since Cata came out as well. And yes, I've actually been trying to figure it out since then. I really don't want to use my computer as a server or rent server space, so the in-game voice chat is one of my best options.

Is anyone else still having this issue. I'm assuming a lot of people don't even know because they never use it.
Mumble! I'll make it a standard just you watch!

I do know that one of the ask the dev's had a question about this. I'll see if I can dig up the exact quote. But if you are looking for an answer right this instant, it said something about them trying to redo it for the future. Soon (tm).

Q: Players don’t use the client-implemented Voice Chat feature because third party applications are much betters. Can I expect improvements in the voice quality and a fix in the delay issue in the future? – 밥상의달인 (Korea)
A: We aren’t at all happy with the quality and feature set of Voice Chat. We think we can do a lot better. While we aren’t working on it right this moment, the next time we revisit Voice Chat, we want it to be an epic improvement, the same way Dungeon Finder redefined Looking for Group.

And while we are on the subject, I do enjoy the new LFG tool, opposed to the one that was like the LFR tool.
