    1. Curious if any devs have tried Siri in Mandarin and can give some feedback on its performance?

    2. Also is this version of Siri in English any better recognition with a Mandarin to English accent?

    Thank you.

    I've tried the siri mandarin for Taiwan, very accurate; though the voice sounds like a female zombie :eek:

    not sure what you are asking in your second question :confused:

    I think the question is whether Siri is better in iOS 6 at recognizing non-native English speakers.

    Anyone tried it in Cantonese? Very complex language with lots of different characters and sounds.

    The OS has supported Chinese characters for a long time and does it well.

    Siri English recognition of ESL, in my experience, is not too good. I'm hoping it is much improved and hope the Mandardin (okay I'll include Cantonese) recognition performs well with the new iOS rollout.
