The iPhone’s Siri Is Terrible at Scottish Accents [VIDEO]

The iPhone's Siri Is Terrible at Accents

This poor Scottish fellow is having a bit of trouble with his iPhone’s Siri voice-recognition technology. No matter how hard he tries to annunciate, he can’t seem to get his phone to “create a reminder.” It seems Siri was designed for American accents, and American accents only.

So ultimately, what does this mean? Is Siri still useful? Oh, aye. So long as ye don’t go haverin’ on like a wee bam so it cannae understand ye, ya bas. Watch Siri completely failing to detect an thick Scottish brogue below.
