New Natural Siri Voices for Japanese, Mandarin, and Australian and U.K. English
February 4, 2014 in iPhone News & Rumors by
The recently released iOS 7.1 beta 5 now includes “natural-sounding” updates to Siri’s voice for Australian English, U.K. English, Japanese, and Mandarin Chinese, according Apple’s release notes. The iOS device initially uses a compact voice for Siri. After you have configured a Wi-Fi network and have the device connected to a power source, iOS will automatically download and install a higher quality version.
Thought Apple’s Siri can apparently only handle simple and universal Japanese phrases in the past, now Siri performs flawlessly and better in this release. Even more better with Japanese, Mandarin, and Australian and U.K. English natural voices.
