    Default Seri needs a Southern Drawl App

    I have a pretty heavy East Texas/Arkansas drawl. When I try to use Seri, she always says she can only answer questions asked in US English. Shoot, I'm speaking US English! Anybody else have a problem with Seri?

    I don't have her, but I often wish I could get my Google Maps app to use a different voice for driving directions. Like Hugh Jackman's. Or George Clooney's.

    Yeah North Florida/South Georgia Hick Talk is also not one of the languages mentioned.

    Me: "Seeeeree Where is th narest Seeveen Ellevn?"

    Siri: "You have no new messages"

    Me: "Uhhh"

    I draw some things out and cut off other things when I talk. Eh well?

    I'm also in East Texas and while I don't have a heavy southern accent, I can only use Siri if I try hard to have no accent at all. They should make a southern Siri!!

    Voice recognition software for computers has been around for quite a while, and most of them have you read some set scripts to them so they adjust to your voice, accent, diction, etc. It sure seems like Apple could spring for that kind of feature for Siri, doesn't it?
