YNETNEWS.com (http://bit.ly/1l54L9R) reports that it has been speculated that Hebrew would be joining the list of languages already supported by Apple after it began running ads seeking people to record Siri’s voice in Hebrew.

Upon the release of its iOS 9 operating system in September, some Israelis found Apple’s Hebrew language option problematic in that it caused involuntary movement of the interface.

Siri stands for Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface.

Is she going to speak Ashkenasis? Sefardit? Chassidish? Are you going to be able to ask her questions like, Vois iz Neias and she'll answer. Can you ask her about the reliability of Kashrus? And finally, will the Roshei Yeshiva forbid listening to Siri's voice as Kol Ishah?
