TechCrunch reports Apple is introducing two English-speaking voices for Siri. And making it so that you can pick the voice you like best when setting up an iOS or HomePod device.
Apple recruited new talent for the two voices and then ran them through its Neural text to speech engine. They apparently sound more natural, with better inflection and smoother transitions between different words. Those aren’t the only Siri-related improvements coming with iOS 14.5.
With the latest beta, Siri voices in Ireland, Italy, and Russia have gotten the neural text to speech treatment. All in all, iOS 14.5 is shaping to be a significant upgrade for Apple’s mobile operating system.
One of the more notable changes being the cross-app and site tracking permissions the company plans to enforce. Apple will release iOS 14.5 later this spring.
