There's a pretty comprehensive guide here

Easy.
That guide above gives full details, but in short
1. Subscribe to the speed cam service here
2. Go to the download page (link on right)
3. Select "TomTom OV2" or "TomTom zip"** and "speed-zoned complete" for UK
4. Install using the "MyTomTom" (Now re-named "MyDrive Connect") PC utility program from TomTom.
5. Set up your preferred warning distances for each camera type and speed on the TomTom itself (This is boring and takes a good 10 minutes, but you only need to do it once)
6. Update data whenever you wish (new files come out every Wednesday) by re-doing steps 2-4.


(**Techy note... The "OV2" download means selecting all the individual files in a list in MyTomTom. Normally that works fine, but on SOME PC's if you use Internet Explorer as your web-browser, you can't select all the files in one go. If that happens, then the "zip" download can be quicker to install)

Yes. The instructions detailed above include voice warnings, e.g. "Ding, Dong, Fixed camera zone, Speed limit 30 miles per hour" (or summat similar).
