The Guy Who Did Not Know He Was The Biggest Selling Point For The iPhone 4s
John Briggs , A British voice actor today revealed some interesting news to The Telegraph. A lot of you will reconise John’s voice from the famouse UK Tv program the weakest link. John today confirmed that it is his voice which is being used on the iPhone 4s’ Siri , He then went on to say that he had no idea of it and only releaside by watching the recently released Siri Commerical. Briggs had been contacted by the PR department at Apple just after the iPhone 4s launch and told him to keep quite about the involment in this job, but today it all came out and I dont think Apple will be very happy.
He recorded 5,000 sentences over three weeks for a firm called Scansoft. In 2005 it merged with a company called Nuance, which now provides the voice recognition technology for Siri.
“I did a set of recordings… spoken in a very particular way and only reading flat and even,” Mr Briggs said.
“Then they go away and take all the phonics apart, because ‘I’ have to be able to read anything you want, even if I’ve never actually recorded all those words.”
