Audial depictions of God and the Second Commandment

Hi everyone!

I wanted to get your thoughts on something. Many of us are familiar with the second commandment's prohibition on the making of images and the prohibition of images in Deut. 4:15-18. Granted, interpretation of how far reaching those commandments are differs, but I wanted to get your thoughts on something specific.

Are non-visual depictions of God prohibited? Think along the lines of a Christian children's television show that uses a voice actor to simulate the voice of God. What about the same, but used for a skit or play? Would it be different if the actor depicting God's voice only speaks in the exact words God said Himself in scripture, such as Exodus 3:4? I look forward to your thoughts.
