At 2:57 is a brief, indistinct recording of Lee’s voice as she delivers a simple acceptance speech: “I had a speech prepared, but my heart is too full to make it. All I can say is thank you, all of you, for one of the greatest days of my life. Thank you.”

Her voice can also be heard in the video below, from a radio interview she gave 42 years earlier, in 1964. The excerpt starts at 2:11. There’s also a brief interview at 1:30 with her wonderfully raspy-voiced elder sister and caregiver, Alice Finch Lee, who died in 2014 at the age of 103.
