From Middle English voice, voys, vois, borrowed from Anglo-Norman voiz, voys, voice, Old French vois, voiz (Modern Француски voix), from Латински vōcem, accusative form of vōx (“voice”), from Proto-Indo-European *wṓkʷs, root noun from *wekʷ- (“to utter, speak”). Cognate with Санскрт वाच् (vāc), Антички Грчки ὄψ (óps), Ирански آواز (âvâz).
