How to setup QOS for voice on a HP 1910 switch

My customer has an allworx phone system with about 20 phones.  They have 40 workstations.  All of it was running over a 10/100 netgear switch.  I have installed 2 new switches - Hp v1910-48G for the data and a HP 1910-24G POE for the phones.  So now that I have physically separated the switches, I see no point in VLAN'ing, but I would think since the switches are still connected (phone system talks to server) I think QoS would still be useful.  I have never had the need to setup QoS before on a layer 3 switch, so any help in this area would be helpful.  I've attached a screen shot so you can see all my options...

Refer to section on 'Voice VLAN configuration' where it states:
 
A voice VLAN is configured especially for voice traffic. After assigning the ports connecting to voice devices to a voice VLAN, the system automatically configures quality of service (QoS) parameters for voice traffic, improving the transmission priority of voice traffic and ensuring voice quality.

I understand that if I configure a voice VLAN it will automatically employ QoS on it, but I dont want another VLAN - I just want QoS

Read section 4.

BTW, best practice is to give voice its own VLAN... would probably make it easier too. Even if the devices are on physically separate switches, you are still getting broadcasts from the workstation switch into the phone switch.
