Thanks to the tutorial from nothing2c, I’ve successfully changed Siri’s accent on my iPhone from femmebot American bitch to stern, task-master Brit dude. If Apple is taking suggestions for English-speaking accents to add to the selection in the next Siri upgrade, here’s my wishlist:
- Addled Chinese Lady Speaking English: Because I love me some addled Chinese ladies
- Smooth-Talking Male Robot From Oklahoma Speaking English: Because I love me some robot men from Oklahoma (really, who doesn’t?)
- Girlfriend From the ‘Hood Speaking English: Because I love me anything that my girl from the ‘hood says to me
- Paul Lynde Speaking English: Because Paul Lynde speaking back to me from the great beyond through my iPhone would totally make me fall in love with Siri, fo’ realz.
