Doing that is fine, but rarely will you hear a human voice in them.

The best you can do is a computer sounding voice using MIDI, But music can sound very good. The human and musical instruments put off very complex waveforms that MIDI will normally not duplicate. You need a Large MIDI sound library to get decent quality.
You can always set compression to MAX in a MP3 file and they can get very small in file size, but you give up Quality. Just set the bit rate to your Hearing range and you are good to go.
If a person can only hear out in one ear then Compressing the MP3 or Wav to MONO would net a much smaller file.
MP3 is decent quality but wav is still the best quality, but will take 10X more memory in most cases.
MIDI is fine for what it was designed for. I have Real MIDI ports on some of my computers, now you rarely see them.
