The Voice of Siri: Who is the Voice Over Artist?

cnnAlthough Apple will not confirm, it seems likely that Siri is Susan Bennett, who lives in Atlanta.

A CNN article from a few months ago tells us that Susan laid down the tracks eight years ago. I bet she did not every figure she’d be heard daily by 100 million people!

“Bennett, who won't divulge her age, fell into voice work by accident in the 1970s. Today, she can be heard worldwide. She speaks up in commercials and on countless phone systems. She spells out directions from GPS devices and addresses travelers in Delta airport terminals.”

It really is an interesting read! Jessica Ravitz describes how Bennet, in 2005, recorded endless gibberish, four hours a day. This was so the geeks could carve out the consonants and vowels and create the responses Siri gives. Can you imagine how boring it would be for hour after hour to say one word or tiny phrase at a time…. And all for a strange kind of fame!
