How to change Siri's voice from female to male


Siri, the voice assistant that came alongside the Apple iPhone 4s and iOS 5 back in late 2011, was the first intelligent smartphone “concierge” from the Great Triumvirate (Siri, Google Now, Cortana) that saw the light of day. It's been around for quite a long time now and probably most of the iUsers out there have probably used it at least several times.

What sets it apart from the competition that's coming from Google and Microsoft is that Siri is a tad more personal and witty than the rest, thus providing each user with a different experience. Even if you are not using an Apple product, it's pretty safe to say that you've heard Siri's voice several times at least.

In fact, even Siri's name means “beautiful woman who leads you to victory” in Norwegian, which makes a pretty strong connection between the gender of the voice and Apple's voice assistant itself. But what if we made Siri... male? What if we could opt for a more masculine voice and take a break from the default feminine one? Well, this is totally possible and as easy as pie.

And, as usual, we'll show you how to do this.

And ... PA will remove my post for the third time when I used the word "shemale". Something doesn't sit well with PA with that word.

Great ! Now Siri won't get distracted while driving and give me unnecessary jewellery and shoe shop recommendations.

I can think of a good name instead of Siri, call him Sori. That's what he'll probably say most of the time when you ask him something. Sori, can't do that!
