    Siri doesn't understand me :(

    Apple's Siri doesn't speak Southern.
    At all.
    She doesn't cotton a single word I say. I ask, and she just spits gibberish back at me.
    I've got an accent, but it ain't that damned thick (usually).

    It's like this:

    I did not know you were Scottish. Explains the love of scotch and fly fishing.

    Well, if you use terms like "doesn't cotton a single word I say" no wonder.

    Let's see what Siri probably hears when Allen sez: I've got an accent, but it ain't that damned thick.

    Ahv guyot n ack-see-ent, bud eeit ain't theyat dammd the ick.

    She came back with, "Oh for the love of Great Steve's ghost, talk English you friggin' hick."

    I'm not quite sure how to take that.

    Try asking it "what is NFC?" or "NFC card"

    my galaxy S3 was hopeless. It could never get the words right. "NFE", "NFE card", "NFC car". It kept reminding me of mercs on top gear.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    There's no voice recognition system capable of understanding Puerto Rican accent. I specially despise customer service lines that do not give the option of using TDMF tones until the voice recognition fails at least 3 times:

    System - Please say what you are calling for... "power outage", "billing issues" or "new instalation"
    Rube - "power outage"
    System - "did you say billing issues?"
    Rube - "no"
    System - "billing issues... please choose "request payment extension", "bill has errors"..."
    Rube - "No billing issues! I have a power outage!!"
    System - "you have requested a payment extension..."
    Rube - Arg!

    Newfoundlander here, I feel your pain.
