say "panna cotta"

There must someone on the planet that can say panna cotta into their iPhone iPod or ipad and the voice recognition software gets it. When I, my wife, her sister, her father and mother, brother and inlaws say panna cottas to their iPhones it is never correct. The google version of voice recognition nailed it the first time for all of us. I get Anacada, Anacada and Anacada every time!

What about you?

I get the same thing, and I speak very robotic-like. Try correcting it and see if that helps.

I tap on I and have the option of select, select all, paste. What do I do to teach Siri what I am saying?

Okay, great. Thanks for the info.

Everyone in my circle can not get Siri to understand Panna Cotta. We are Canadians with no strong accents or slurring. I find it interesting that people from Europe seem to be getting the correct response from Siri.

My South African / South Yorkshire / Irish Kerry brogue came back as "panty cutter..." Sadly I didn't want to search the web for a panty cutter....

Stop, just stop. The ignorance is cringe-worthy.

This also seems like an appropriate time for:

Guess I set the bar pretty low with that statement. I did manage a chortle, though.

I wonder what Siri makes when British voices say 'strorbrees' as opposed to strawberries.

You are kidding, aren't you? You can tell which village someone in the west country comes from because their accents are different.

Glaswegian sounds nothing like the Edinburgh accent, or indeed, like anything else and Geordie is as similar to spouse as it to Chinese. There are as many different accents in England as there are regions, if not more. Same goes for the other countries that make up the UK.
