We have those here, and the verbal message says something like: 
The walk sign is on to cross Wellesley, or whatever street you've 
pushed the button to cross.  I actually like them because I'm 
directionally challenged and they help me know which button to 
push.  As you cross it gives a countdown which can be good and 
bad.  At first, I wanted to hurry across.  But there's plenty of 
time to cross, and now that I'm used to them, I don't hurry so 
much.  Whether we like them or not, they are here to stay, I 
think.     Peace,    Debby
