    No included bit crusher as of now unluckily, but it can always be solved by external plugins that Audacity will recognize.

    time stretch can render the ordinary unrecognizable.

    thank you (again and again) to all those who contribute to the Freesound Project - and specifically to those whose sounds I have included in this short track:

    Nothing to Lose but your Banjo. (Don't worry. It contains no actual banjos...)

    There is now just 83 minutes left to back this project (less by the time you read this). If you are kind enough to back this project I will send you some Kangas Sound Editor synthesized ringtones/text-alert tones (just mention you are from Freesound.org), even though the project will not be funded (so you won't have to pay anything).

    The race starts now!!!!

    Within Audacity, your best bet may be the vocoder; try vocoding the voice with a completely different sound, not necessarily musical/harmonic.
    Here's an example of what you can get:

    I mean, so the voice becomes unrecogniseable as a voice, so the actual words are indistinguishable.

    Could you tell more on how the result should sound like?
    For instance, voices but not human? Not voices at all? Words indiscernible?

    Shameless plug, showcasing what can be done to voices:

    Let alone the first sound you hear (a synth strings track) everything else is done with vocals by a single vocalist, even the bass-like track.

    I didn't use Audacity for this, but the main tools I've used are in it: paulstretch and pitch change.
    For guitar-like distortion, you might install some external VST effects, then you could recall them in Audacity.

    What kind of distortion did you have in mind? Old telephone, old microphone, digital distortion?

    So, how would I go about distorting voices enough to make them completely indiscernible?

    I use audacity if that helps, and I'm no professional, so tone down the lingo please smile.
