Voice test while in a match

For those of us with finnicky microphone jacks, an ingame voice test would be great. The only place I can currently find the voice test was within the main menu, but when you're in a match the voice test option is missing from the audio menu.

Without it, we have to rely on "can you hear me now?" to make sure our microphone plugs are seated properly. (Also worth noting, improperly seated or shortcircuited mic jacks can send white noise or garbage when we speak---so it's worth being able to test voice ourselves rather than subject our teammates to it, or having to leave a game in progress.)

Voice set-up/Testing is done via the Steam interface. You'll find everything you need in the Voice Tab in the Steam Settings window.

Aside from that I don't think SH actually runs their own stuff, using the existing steam features seems to be the best option. Less settings to worry about for those who already have it set-up.

As Lost says, you can test your mic from the Steam overlay in game. Changing the status of this to "not planned" as Steam already provides a solution.
