Thanks for your help martin.

a voice prompt would be used to say to someone else, as in a voicemail
system, "You have a message from" <your recording of your name>.

Maybe this is a <preference>, since the user chooses it,
but since this is actually a record of a user saying something,
it conceivably could be used to counterfeit who a message is from.
maybe this should just be another custom category.

What if the voice data is used for authentication, proving that you are
you say you are?

This is part of a general category of identifying information, like
voice samples,
finger prints, retinal scans, dna information, visual scans, faceprints

Is this type of thing considered PII?
