Apple’s new mobile operating system, iOS 7, features new Siri voices, so Bennett’s reign as the American Siri may be coming to an end.
While Apple has never identified her, all signs indicate that she was the original voice of Siri in the United States. Bennett recorded the tracks for a client eight years ago. She had no idea she’d someday be speaking to more than 100 million people through a not-yet-invented phone.
The Verge posted a video last month, “How Siri found its voice,” that led some viewers to believe that Allison Dufty, was the voiceover talent. But Dufty, on her website, claims that she is “absolutely, positively NOT the voice of Siri.”
