I am Siri: Woman claims her voice is being used for iPhone and iPad personal assistant


A woman has come forward to claim she is the voice of Siri - the personal assistant app found on devices such as the iPhone and iPad

If found correct, Susan Bennett will not only have answered the obscure and burning questions of many people worldwide, but will also have unknowingly featured alongside stars such as Zoey Deschanel and Samuel L. Jackson.

Apple have never revealed who the voice behind Siri is, but Ms Bennett is certain that vocals that she recorded eight years ago, during her time as a voice actress, have been taken and used for the device.

Ms Bennett was hesitant to admit her discovery at first, stating: ‘I wasn't sure that I wanted that notoriety, and I also wasn't sure where I stood legally. And so, consequently, I was very conservative about it for a long time

"Then this Verge video came out ... And it seemed like everyone was clamoring to find out who the real voice behind Siri is, and so I thought, well, you know, what the heck? This is the time."

Bennett’s vocals were first recorded for ScanSoft in 2005, where she was told to record nonsensical phrases, the snippets were then synthesised and eventually made their way on to the GPS and telephone systems.

Apple have refused to comment about the revelation, however it has been confirmed by an audio forensics expert that Susan and Siri’s vocals are a 100% match.
