"Recorded voice profiles" tells me this is something that likely was created
by recording a human voice. It might be digitized, extrapolated, crunched,
bunched, but still started with the recording of a human voice.

"Voice profiles" could be purely mechanical representations of human voice
categorized as male, female, young, old, etc., and indicates that this might
sound like those awful mechanical voices you hear on some telephone
answering systems.

In my previous post I wrote "our systems are usually shipped pre-installed,"
but I wouldn't write that professionally. In our doc, I wrote something like
we "ship the computer with the software already installed."

However, I just noticed the following sentence in another manual: "the
system is shipped with the following pre-recorded voice profiles." If we
simply removed "pre-record," the meaning would be just as clear: "the system
is shipped with the following voice profiles." Or, would it be better to add
"already recorded?"
