The Original Voice of Siri Speaks

Voice actress Susan Bennett has come forward to CNN as the original voice of Siri. While neither Apple or Nuance would offer confirmation, her claim has been verified by colleagues and an audio-forensics expert. Bennett’s specialty is interactive voice response (IVR), the technology behind automated phone systems. She was hired by ScanSoft in 2005 for an IVR project. ScanSoft later merged with Nuance, which is reported to be the source of Siri’s voice technology.favicon follow link

Fascinating and charming story. I'm pretty sure Ms Bennett is the voice of Merdian Mail, the most awesome IVR system I ever had the pleasure of working with.

An exceptional talent.
