How Siri Found Its Voice

Siri

Technology, science, art, and culture website The Verge have created a film giving us a unique look at the inner workings of Nuance Communications – the company responsible for creating Siri’s voice on iOS. The 10-minute documentary charts the history of voice synthesisation from its origins in cars like the Chrysler New Yorker in 1983 through to modern day use in products like TomTom and iPhone. We also hear from voiceover “talent” like Allison Dufty, who was first discovered while reading out the specials in a restaurant.
