Quoted: The voice of Siri on what made her cry

“This can be a thankless business. It’s so nice to know my voice is being used in a good way.”

— Susan Bennett, who a couple of weeks ago came forward as the original voice of Siri, the virtual personal assistant on Apple iPhones. Since then, the resident of suburban Atlanta has been inundated with calls from the media, but also with notes from the blind. They have relied on her voice, which also has been used in text-to-speech services, to “read.” Those messages made her cry, Bennett told CNN.
