Siri is also undergoing a re-vamp in the new iOS 7 software launch. Experts have claimed that when Siri was initially launched the dominant gender stereotypes of the nation where it was sold dictated the use of a male or female voice. Hence male in the UK and female in the US. In its new guise you’ll be able to choose between male or female voices for your Siri.
The original creators of the technology behind Siri apparently envisaged multiple characters and wanted to go so far as to install technology that would see the iPhone mimic its user’s way of talking. It does lead me to wonder if in yet another reinvention down the line Siri be more akin to Satnav voices where you can download your favourite personality’s voice.
