[Updated] How Siri Got Her Voice [VIDEO]

Here’s an interesting feature on “machine language,” put together by The Verge. They touch on a lot of interesting things (and there’s a small clip of Ricardo Montalban) but if you’d like to jump straight to Siri, aka Allison Dufty, go to 3:34 in the video.

Update: We heard from Dufty, who clarified that she is not the voice of Siri, rather an actress used by the video to illustrate how Siri’s voice was created. Apologies for the error.

    sorta makes you wonder what else the big bang theory has lied to us about.

    Somehow, when I saw the title, ‘How Siri found its voice’ I was imagining something like ‘How Stella got her Groove back.’

    I don’t care what they say, if that is her voice reading into the mic she is the voice of Siri. I’m sure Apple had her retract everything!
