Susan Bennett: Siri voice revealed

According to CNN, actress Susan Bennett says her voice was used for Apple’s virtual assistant Siri.

“I wasn’t sure that I wanted the notoriety,” Susan Bennett told CNN, explaining her delay in coming forward, “and I also wasn’t sure where I stood legally.”

Susan Bennett says the Siri voice was recorded in 2005 at GM Voices on behalf of ScanSoft, a software company that was working on an undisclosed project.

Apple did not confirm Susan Bennett’s story, but an audio-forensics expert says he is “100 percent certain” she is the voice, and Bennett’s lawyer, who cannot confirm the details of confidential contracts, notes he’s had “substantial negotiations” with “parties along the economic food chain” regarding hiring Bennett as the voice of Siri.

Susan C. Bennett is one of the busiest and most versatile voice-over artists/vocalists working today.
