Considering I operate the website where you found these, I feel that I
should respond.

As far as I know, all AT&T recordings are real people and are not

In times past, most of these were recorded by the late Jane Barbe or
Pat Trumbull (Trumble?), now recently remarried and goes by the name
Pat Fleet.

However, I don't know the name of the person who made those
recordings, nor most of the ones you find on the AT&T network these

In addition, recordings from the older 4ESS tandems are stored in
analog, while I think that the more modern 4ESS tandems have their
recordings in digital format.

Hope this helps.
