Siri's voice: Susan Bennett reveals that she is the real voice behind Apple's Siri

Bennett has revealed herself the voice of Apple’s original Siri, and in a recent interview with CNN, she dished on, among other things, how she came to be the one to give life to your favorite snarky personal assistant.

...
“The Siri voices were recorded in 2005, in the month of July, four hours a day for the whole month,” Bennett told CNN. “When I recorded those voices, I had absolutely no idea where they would end up.”

Yes. Product development dragged out... Steve jobs underestimated how much the velocity of product development in technology would change. This is evident in his presentations about the original iPhone.

Good point. Product development takes time, especially with complex technology such as voice recognition.

Now that we know who the voice behind Siri is, when will we find out who is the voice in the Android system ??

Funny thing about Susan Bennett (Siri's voice) is that I remember in the late 70's or early 80's when she did the voice for "Tilly the all time teller" as she reveled in her video interview. Of course, back then I didn't know who did the voice.
