We have a phone announcement system. The admin drone in the lobby can announce "Joe smith call extension 514 please. Joe smith, extension 514."

Occasionally she announces meetings. This is all done through the speakerphone speaker that is part of everyones phones.

Sometimes it's too loud and everyone winces in unison. Other times whomever is announcing screws up, and you can hear giggling all the way across the building. Other times someone will accidentally hit the button and you hear the sound of a person sitting on a phone.

And I just figured out what it reminds me of. The woman who makes the announcements most of the time has a particular voice, and it makes me feel like I'm board the Starship Enterprise. Neat.
