Millions of people have spoken with Apple's Siri, but until now no one knew that her real name is Susan Bennet. No one still knows that for sure, and Apple won't confirm it, but CNN found audio forensic experts that back up the Atlanta-based voice actress's claims.
Bennet told CNN that when "I first discovered that was my voice," she said, "to be honest it was a little creepy." Well Ms. Bennet I'm now creeped-out knowing that you're the voice of Siri too.
I think that Apple should make voice actors sign a contract that they won't divulge that they're the voice behind Apple's current or future virtual assistants, like Siri. I don't want to know who the guy is behind the male version of Siri either. I want my virtual assistants to be virtually unknown, always. It's not personal. It's just that there shouldn't be a certain visual associated with a virtual assistant's voice. Now there is.
