The Voice of Siri

The Voice of Siri

CNN has identified the original voice of Siri, Apple’s voice-activated virtual “assistant” introduced with the iPhone 4S in 2011. It belongs to singer and voice actress Susan Bennett of Sandy Springs Georgia, co-owner of Audiocam Music recording studio. Her reign as Siri ended this year with the introduction of Apple’s iOS 7 operating system, which has new Siri voices.
