SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. - An Atlanta-area woman tells CNN she is the voice of Apple’s Siri virtual assistant.
Susan Bennett lives in Sandy Springs. She told CNN she is a voiceover actor who recorded the tracks in 2005, years before the iPhone ever existed. Now, she says, her voice is featured on more than 100 million iPhones.
Professionals who know Bennett, along with an audio forensics expert, confirm Bennett’s claim. Apple will not confirm the identity of Siri’s ubiquitous voice.
CNN tracked Bennett down accidentally. Reporter Jessica Ravitz said she was interviewing the voices of the world’s busiest airport, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, when she landed on the phone with Bennett, the voice of Delta terminals. Ravitz said she quickly asked Bennett if she was Siri.
