Behind this breakthrough technology there is a real woman. While the ever-secretive Apple company has never made her known, all signs indicate that the original voice of Siri in the United States is a voiceover actor who laid down recordings for a client eight years ago. She never knew she would oneday be speaking to more than 100 million people through a not-yet-invented phone.
