E2E encrypted voice and chat service similar to Discord/Slack?

You could use a Tox front end like qTox or Toxic. It is a fully encrypted end-to-end communication protocol that allows text, voice, and video chat. The github page for the Tox protocol has some useful caveats about the its security.
Tox: Decentralized and Encrypted Instant Messaging

It links to a bug report discussion where one of the developers states that they don't understand the security properties of tox very well.
I find that worrying.

Ouch! Yeah, that was around the time I tried out Tox – did not know about this, though. It's been four years since they were made aware of that crypto hazard, and it seems they have eliminated it.7 projects | reddit.com/r/privacytoolsIO | 12 Apr 2021

Tox has experimental crypto and major vulnerabilities. I wouldn't recommend using it and expecting reasonable security.
aTox 0.6.0 released (and aTox is now also available on F-Droid!)

aTox also uses an unmodified version of the version of Toxcore that Toxic, uTox, qTox, etc all use: https://github.com/TokTok/c-toxcore/ TRIfA uses its own fork of Toxcore: https://github.com/zoff99/c-toxcore
Signal is Great!

Tox has experimental crypto and major vulnerabilities, Session has not yet completed it's security audit and is switching protocols soon, which would invalidate any audit anyways, Element (which I think you mean the matrix protocol) and Conversations (which is XMPP) are both lacking in metadata protection (by a lot!). Jami is the only realistic alternative but p2p messengers are just not usable at the moment. Let's not begin as to why telegram is bad because I think wikipedia) roasts them well enough and you can read up on that. I hope I explained everything very well.

I suggest they use Session Private Messenger instead. To judge by the activity in the public "Session" group in the client today, Iranians are not having any trouble with connectivity. That might be because Session uses a decentralized network.
