iOS 8.3 adds several new languages for Siri: Russian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and English for India. Today the Turkish press identified the Turkish voice behind Siri.
The voice belongs to Yelda Ugurlu, a radio programmer and voice actress from Turkey.
Ugurlu announced that she was working on a recording studio for four weeks in 2012. She said she was told her voice would be used in airports and train stations. Ugurlu only realized that she was Siri’s voice when a friend called her. She explained that when she found out that she was Siri’s voice, she was very excited at first, but she continued:
“Then I started to worry when I realized that people were using Siri for adult jokes. I didn’t want my identity to be revealed.”
Ugurlu also revealed that this job was the most boring job she had. “I was tired and tired,” she added. During this work, she was ordered to read letters and sentences without emotion. She also revealed that her phone (iPhone 4) didn’t have Siri.
