Re: "far more pleasant to have a voice than a beep"

That Beep is shorthand for a longer statement, one we are familiar with and does NOT need to be read out longhand every flipping time. It's a time saver and convenience.

Imagine the horror if the simple one or two beep security arming for vehicles was replaced with voice responses. And for what gain?
