The woman behind that comforting and helpful voice on millions of U.S. iPhones and iPads has been revealed. On Friday, CNN introduced Susan Bennett, who lives outside Atlanta, as the source of the recorded answers to everything from “What’s the weather like?” to “What is the meaning of life?”
Bennett told CNN she started the journey as Siri’s voice in 2005, two years before the first iPhone was introduced, offering text-to-speech recordings for four hours a day.
Highly secretive Apple Inc. wouldn’t confirm Bennett’s legitimacy, but a voice analysis professional told CNN he is “100 percent” sure she’s the real deal.
Bennett is the voice of Siri in the United States. Other Siris around the world have already revealed themselves.
