Many may have wondered who has the lady-like voice that exists behind Siri. Well, the search is over. A female voiceover actress from Georgia by the name of Susan Bennett has finally revealed that it is her voice behind the US PDA’s voice system of Siri.

The cat is out of the bag. A female actress by the name of Susan Bennett has at long last come forward to claim responsibility for being the voice behind Apple’s Siri. In her own words she was not sure she wanted the fame. Also she wavered over the decision due to the legal consequences. The creation of the voice overs for Siri took place in the GM Voices studio in Atlanta. 

The recordings began almost a decade ago. While Apple Incorporated didn’t corroborate the fact, the experts all say it is for certain. The voice simply could not be anyone else’s. Today, Siri is a fundamental component of Apple’s iPhones and iPads. 

Before Susan came out with the crucial information, another person named Allison Duffy was thought to be the feminine face behind the voice. But Duffy vehemently denied any involvement on her website. That was when the conservative and reticent Susan Bennett decided she had to let it be known that she was the lady behind the lingo. 

Unbelievably, Bennett had no idea her voice was being used on the Siri. It was only when she was emailed by an acquaintance regarding the obvious resemblance that she decided to weigh her options. Finally, she spoke to the media and now everybody knows that she is the accent at the back of Apple’s voice technology.
