Even though voice commands have been around way before Siri came to the world, the service has pushed the acceleration of voice command adoption.
One of the most unique things about Siri was the voice, the way it was so natural sounding compared to previous services. The voice has become pretty famous and is very distinguishable. However no one knew who the voice was behind Siri. Apple never seemed to tell and the woman behind it has never come forward - till now that is.
The woman behind the Siri voice came forward to CNN and did a mini interview. Funny thing is she never even knew her voice was being used in Siri till a friend made her listen to it.
