@Rob -- Your best solution is to wear a headset with a built-in mic. And use push-to-talk when you need to speak. If you are worried about not being able to hear your wife when she speaks, buy a headset with only one headphone, or just take the phone off of one ear. Be aware, however, that during a raid, you will need to put your gameface on and focus on the encounters... so unlike questing, you can't just stop at any point to have a conversation with your wife.As for people who wish not to speak into a mic, there are various reasons (speech impediment, home environment too noisy with screaming babies, heavy accent, dead/mute, etc.). For the purposes of raiding, I'd word the requirement the way I'd write up a job description. That is, instead of saying "Candidate must be big and brawny," you say, "Candidate must be able to deadlift 100 pounds and carry the weight 20 feet across a room in less than 10 seconds." If the healer cannot use a mic to explain when she's OOM and needs another healer to help, maybe she can set up a macro that either yells or sends a message to the healer channel that says "I'm OOM, help with my target" or somesuch?Bottom line, though; it sounds like she is not ready for serious raiding.
