White or black hardware?  They certainly work on black with the laser printer.  "Paper is jammed in your printer."  How many times have I heard that...

That may be the end of your tests.  I looked on my cube and I only found four .snd files that looked like voice alerts and they are all for the printer.  They're down in /lib if you want to do a find.  This preference looks like nothing more than a per-user global setting that applications can query if they want.

You can certainly play the four files to experience the excitement of voice alerts.
