Woman Claims Apple Used Her Voice for Hebrew Siri Without Permission


The woman behind the female Hebrew voice of the Waze navigation app is suing Apple for using her voice as the Hebrew Siri, JTA reports.

Israeli radio broadcaster Galit Gura-Eini – who has been the voice of Siri since it launched in Hebrew in 2016 – filed a lawsuit last week for about $66,000 in Tel Aviv District Court, the Israeli business daily Calcalist reported. The lawsuit alleges that Apple has been using her voice recordings without authorization.

JTA reports that Apple responded that her “voice on the Siri app is nothing but syllables joined together by an algorithm.”
