    What option for Siri are you using? :confused:

    UK Siri won't understand a word I say while US and Australia Siri understand parts so I'm switching between those two.

    It's not that I have a British accent but I expected UK Siri to at least understand me a decent amount. I think it's crazy the other options understand me more to be fair.

    Where are you from and what accent have you got?

    I'm from London and have been here for ages now, my accent if anything is a little British. But saying that I do talk a lot faster than average Brits, could that be the reason?

    I am from the Midlands and have no difficulty with Siri understanding me while set to UK English. I have not bothered with other settings.

    Talking too fast is not going to help the situation.

    Where were you from before London?

    I'm British etc and have been nothing but surprised about how good Siri actually works. ( expected the usual rubbish).

    I'm well spoken but hardly like the queen.

    I live in the South, having been born and raised there. The UK Siri recognition understands me perfectly.

    I'm a Geordie and siri understands most of what I say...... I don't use it much as I don't find it that usefull here. In the US it has more uses I suppose.

    I'm from Merthyr in Wales and I'm not very well spoken and talk quite fast and I am quite surprised that Siri can understand me sometimes but other times it gets stuff completely wrong :p it's good for setting up reminders and reading me texts when it's a bit cold :p
