iPhone 4S Siri man voice in UK, business & direction problem
Hands-On: The new Apple iPhone 4S has arrived and we have a few little issues already with the voice and directions, iPhone 4S Siri man voice if for those in the UK and the woman in USA, and we are getting a business search problem.
We here at Phones Review will give you the full unboxing, first impressions and many other reviews soon, but for now just wish to chat about the Siri voice and directions.
The iPhone 4S is all set up, the new Siri assistant is switched on in the settings, and all notifications are set such as weather location etc. Now it is time to let you know what we asked Siri and what his reply was. Such a shame that in the UK we get the voice of a robotic man, thought for one minute Stephen Hawkins was on my smartphone, in the US you get the voice of a sexy woman.
We gave the home button a long press and Siri pops up, then we press the microphone icon and asked “Directions”, all we wanted to know was how to get to a certain business address, you would think he would ask you where do you want to go, but oh no, all we got back from Mr. Siri was and quote
“I can only look for businesses, maps, and traffic in the Untied States, and when you’re using U.S English”.
So we are guessing Apple needs to flip the switch on this so that we get this service, hurry up Apple we know you are busy but come on guys.
We have asked Siri hundreds of things already, but this is another article worth reading. Hilarious fun time is what we had, but as a whole it is very precise if you speak clearly. Not impressed that I get the man’s voice, and that it cannot search businesses and give me directions.
