This woman says she’s Siri’s original voice
Apple’s Siri might have finally found its voice.
Susan Bennett, a voice actor from suburban Atlanta, told CNN in an interview published on Friday that she’s the voice behind Siri. To confirm her claim, CNN worked with an audio-forensics expert who claims with 100 percent certainty that the voice of Siri is, in fact, hers.
The story behind Siri’s voice starts in 2005, when Bennett was asked to recite words, phrases, and other “nonsensical” things in her home studio. She claims that she recorded her voice for four hours each day for a month. It wasn’t until 2011, however, that Siri made its appearance on Apple’s iPhone and a friend called her to point out that the personal assistant’s voice sounded just like hers.
