*** On TopGear when Richard Hammond tested the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster (which he points out is from the Ford era) he lamented, "Why when they programmed the [=SatNav=] and recorded the voice commands did they hire the warden from a women's prison? Said voice sounds like a robotic version of [[TheWeakestLink Anne Robinson]].

* KITT in ''Series/KnightRider'' has a soft male voice (ValKilmer in the new series), likely due to it being intended as a military vehicle. KITT's EvilTwin KARR has a much deeper male voice (Creator/PeterCullen, who also voiced Optimus Prime in ''{{Transformers}}'').

* There's a subversion of sorts in RogerZelazny's Literature/CreaturesOfLightAndDarkness where the computer is actually wired to a woman's brain - and it'll only give him the information he wants if he has sex with her (and can manage to keep her satisfied ''while'' he's asking all of his questions).

* The ''StarTrekNewFrontier'' books gave a shoutout to the original Enterprise computer voice when Morgan Primus, who was also Number One in the pilot (played by Majel Barret) [[spoiler:is destroyed and transports her mind into the ship's computers,]] only marginally changing the voice.

** The FanRemake of ''Half-Life'', ''VideoGame/BlackMesa'' plays with this by having the PA system use the female voice from the tram until the military takes control of it, at which point it changes mid-sentence to a very intimidating male voice.
