Oh! Siri what have you done to all of us? I haven’t done anything. It’s you who are crazy about me.
iPhone 4S which comes with an incredible 8 megapixel camera and a sexy voice assistant will be sold in India by Airtel and Aircel. It’s not particularly cheap but it still got everyone talking about it. Reason : Siri.
Would Siri work with Indian accent?
We have seen demos and came to a conclusion that Siri might understand Indian accent but might be missing Indian context. Many have rubbished our observations and claimed that Siri works flawlessly.
Now we are getting a little closer to the truth. As per OnlyGizmos, Apple might be releasing an update to its iOS to make Siri understand Indian accent. That’s incredible.
I still have one question though. Which Indian accent does Siri really understand? Just like there are many local languages and dialects, the same dialects and mother tongue influences were carried on to English. For example, the word lorry is pronounced uniquely by someone from Kerala and the word “air pollution” or “parents” is pronounced uniquely by someone from Tamil Nadu.
Accent idiosyncrasies are prevalent throughout India. Would Siri be well versed with all of these? If it does, then people might actually fall in love with Siri.
