    I am just curious about why Siri never gets it right when I say something about Raspberries in my question/sentence...

    I am not sure if it's related to my pronunciation, even though I am not bad in pronouncing this word to my friends & they always understand me :rolleyes:
    Maybe you could help! Just raise your iPhone (or any other Siri device) in front of your mouth and ask for "Raspberries" or "How many calories are in raspberries?" whatever.
    But do not try it a thousand of times, just once..!

    After that you can tell me how many calories are in raspberries :) thx
    And I would be happy if you cast a vote.

    If anyone has an advice about how to pronounce raspberries better to Siri it'd be awesome if you can share it with me.

    I'm not currently in a position to try this (perhaps later) but it'd help if you included exactly how you pronounce it.

    For example, do you say "razz-berries" or "rasp-berries" or "rass-perries" or "rass-berries"?

    When I speak in a normal speed I do a little break between rasp----berries :-//
    I am quite sure I say raspberries... (not razz or rass)

    Raspberries was no problem for me...however try to get her to understand Yale. Go on...I dare you!

    Directions to Yale University.

    Next Yale basketball game.

    When was Yale founded...nothing works for me! It always comes up as 'yell'.

    I have no idea what I am doing wrong...I try Razz, Rass, Rasp EVERYTHING :(
    Maybe my Siri learned a new word & now she always & really ALWAYS gets Westberry, does that even exist?!

    ----------

    I don't find any places nearby either, maybe it's not entered in the "yelp" system yet :rolleyes:

    ----------

    haha, Yale is no problem for me...
    I give you Yale and you give me raspberry... I have no use for Yale

    try saying it like Razz-berry ...put emphasis on the Z, i actually find Siri word reading to be pretty good, you can also put phonetics for people's names in Contacts

    Word reading is really good, no doubts...
    Looks like I am the only person who has problems with raspberry, maybe I should reset her dictionary somehow (how?), so I can start a new beginning, I think I taught her a word which she can't forget :(

    EDIT: It's the same odd problem on my Mac w/ Siri

    Thanks but I think I she guesses I say Pari and makes Paris out of it...
    I constantly get replies with Paris, Les Paris, Last Paris. I am definitely not saying Les nor Last :'(
    I don't know what is wrong with me, I feel like I am the problem since everyone else gets it correctly :(

    I see you're in NY, and you mentioned your pronunciation.


    Do you have a standard NY city accent? Is English your first language?

    Siri has trouble understanding my wife (Japanese is her first language), she changed siri to Japanese and it works nearly flawless for her.

    I'm from NY and I have a NY accent, just tested saying "raspberry" in the Apple Store on Siri and it got it correct instantly the first time.. That is extremely weird to be honest

    You don't say!
    Sooo weird :'( I can't actually confirm if I got any kind of accent, I always felt like an accent-less guy :-// Maybe I got an accent on raspberries, I don't know which one tho. 'Google Now' gets me when I say raspberries btw :rolleyes:

    ----------

    Yeah it's my first & as I mentioned above I don't think I have any accent, I hope that's even possible, otherwise I don't know how to describe my voice :confused:

    Same results for me, and I'm a Georgia girl with a regional accent. :)

    EDIT: However, Yale is a Fail every time. Nothing I can say will get the correct result. :(

    You said you put a space between ras-perries, like a short pause. I think it would work better if you said it altogether, fast, with no pause. RAZBERRIES.

    Well, Siri can't list all the second-rate institutions. :p Anyways, raspberry (razzberry) and Yale work in Siri for me.

    I wonder if OP is from Jersey - they have odd pronunciations there (qwoffee, qweemer).

    Nah...!
    I am not from Jersey, and besides that I don't think they have bad pronunciation.

    Throughout all of this, I've had one question that I hope you can answer for me:

    What is this seemingly urgent or in some way important need that you have to say "raspberry" to Siri so many times during the day?

    And I mean no disrespect but before testing it out for this thread, I'd never said "raspberry" to Siri at any point. Of course, I know our lives all differ in their own ways but I just can't quite figure out why anyone would express "hope" that Siri will understand "raspberry" for "the rest of the day."

    Just curious is all. Thanks! And glad to see it's working for you (or did at least once).

    I am from upstate NY, damn near everyone in NYC has a thick accent. If you talk like everyone around you who has the same accent, then you'd probably think you don't have an accent. It's amazing how upstate NY, NYC, and MA talk much different and we're all so close together.

    The Inception

    I wanted to know how many calories are in a raspberry.
    I simply asked Siri in my basic voice...of course she got something completely different. *wat a surprise*

    I haven't just tried it twice or twenty times. Really loads of times...
    It does indeed confuse me if something is wrong with my talk or if it is the software behind (Google gets me more often than Siri)

    But as I see I am one of the rare species who has probs with raspberries :eek: :(

    ----------

    I am not sure :-/
    But did it work for you? The raspberry thing.
