Create personalized verbal alerts for the iPhone iOS devices
Want to wake up or be alerted by a friendly voice? In OS 3.1, use the Voice Memo app to record your own wake-up or alert message. Sync the iPhone to your computer, then look in your iTunes Library under Voice Memos.

The recording will have a nonsense numerical string, followed of the ".m4a" suffix, for a name. Copy the file and change its name to Whatever_You_Want.m4r, and drop it into Ringtones in iTunes. Presto -- you've got a personalized alert to use for ring tones, Alarm Clock, and any other app that has access to the ring tone list.

You don't need to record on the phone - you can also record on your Mac.

Seems this only works on iPhones---no love for iPod Touches. Bummer.
