Apple introduced a very nice human interactive System from iphone 4 S, that’s Apple Siri, Voice Command. But, there is an issue with Siri Command, Asian accent specially Indian. India and China are one of the biggest buyers of Apple and key markets.
Good news is, Apple has included Indian Accent in IOS 8.3 Beta version. Now, Indians will have better experience of Siri. Though, Siri supports many languages like Chinese ( Cantonese – Hongkong, Mandarian – China & Taiwan ), English ( Australia, Canada, UK, US ), French ( Canada, France, Switzerland ), German ( Germany, Switzerland ), Italian ( Italy, Switzerland ), Japanese, Korean, Spanish ( Mexico , Spain and US ).
Though, I have been using Siri in India, Another disappointment which came was, When i tried to search for a place in India, Simple reply was ” Sorry, I cant look for places in India ”
