Decades ago, when I worked for Boeing on the EICAS, an engineer told me that they tried a female voice for the cockpit warnings for the more differentiated pitch and level of urgency. But the mostly male pilots were tuning it out. My suggestion to use James Earl Jones's voice was unfortunately dismissed.
