Voice actress Susan Bennett claims to be Apple's Siri

By
American voiceover professional Susan Bennett has claimed that she is the voice of Apple's Siri personal assistant in the US.

The actress told CNN that she laid down the vocals for a client eight years ago, but had no idea they would be used on such a wide scale.



Apple has never officially confirmed who provides the voice of Siri, but an experienced audio forensics expert is said to have detected a 100% between the virtual assistant and Bennett's vocals.

"There are some people that just can read hour upon hour upon hour, and it's not a problem. For me, I get extremely bored... So I just take breaks," said Bennett of her time recording the Siri vocals.

"That's one of the reasons why Siri might sometimes sound like she has a bit of an attitude," Bennett said with a laugh. "Those sounds might have been recorded the last 15 minutes of those four hours!"

Siri was introduced with the release of the iPhone 4S in 2011 and has gone on to feature on every iOS device since.
