Have you tried the microphones that pick up the sound from your neck
rather than your mouth. I'd have to do some research, but you know
the kind I'm talking wraps around your neck and has two
pickups that sit on your throat.

I'd also imagin that this kind of mic is much more expensive...I
guess it depends on how important the capability is.
