The “Intelligent Assistant”, Siri has generated a whole lot of excitement. Not just because talking to your phone gets a new meaning, but also because it is a unique way to get things done. It will do things like set the alarm, schedule a reminder, call a contact or search the web. However, what it will not do - any location search in India.
The way we pronounce words, our accent is the real bottleneck here. You need to speak slowly and clearly for Siri to properly understand what you have just said. The words need to be spaced out, and the speed of the speech has to be a lot slower than it usually would be. While it will work well, if you follow the slow and clear routine, in a silent environment, Siri does get very annoyed with any ambient noise.
Overall, while it is fun to get things done by talking with the phone, it is equally irritating to have it understand words all wrong, and having to re-say the entire thing.
