The voice behind Apple’s Siri in the UK tells us more →
Interesting thing is how his voiced is used for Siri:
“I did a set of recordings with Scansoft five or six years ago, for text-to-speech services,” says Briggs. “Five thousand sentences over three weeks, spoken in a very particular way and only reading flat and even. Then they go away and take all the phonics apart, because I have to be able to read anything you want, even if I’ve never actually recorded all those words.”
The guy is also the voice of satnavs for Garmin, TomTom, Jaguar, Land Rover, Audi and Porsche.
