I got really good at typing really really fast. Also, by using just typing the bare bones of info i.e. "TRAP!" instead of "My good adventuring companions, I do believe there may be a trap up ahead. Perhaps we should stop and allow our trapper to detect and disable the device so we don't set it off and inflict upon ourselves great bodily harm.", you can get your point across quickly and easily. I don't believe everyone will see it (as I mentioned previously, I typed exclusively for the first 4 years and so much of what I wanted to convey got ignored/lost in combat spam) but I don't know that obtrusive voice overs are the answer.
We have microphones on our headsets that are better.
Good idea but too arcade like in my opinion

To the OP: I am wondering, did you know there is a /Stop command in DDO. It has your Toon Shout Stop and Puts an Icon over their head to Stop.
Secondly, There is is a macro system in DDO, and while it is about the most awkward convoluted and annoying thing I have ever dealt with, It can be used to link the /stop command to a single key stroke. I think that is pretty much about all the macro system can do with any usefulness.
I have yet to see anyone actually use this feature, ever, at all in any quest, raid, or anytime other then when people were in the harbor or market playing with /emotes.
So I am not in any way trying to be rude, but, I see no point in adding an even more complex (and thus most likely end up being more convoluted) system, when players are not using what we already have.
meh....positives and negatives to this. If anything, I do think it'd be a good idea. I've played with mute folks in the party and typing out instructions or waiting to have those instructions in a raid typed out can be arduous. I can also see the abuse this could take at the same time.
So....that being said....
Spells have a cool down...give this a cool-down too. that way you can't spam.
just a thought.
