Robin Williams does impression of Siri, suggests localized accents

During his appearance on Ellen, comedian Robin Williams shared some quite entertaining thoughts on Siri, especially a great impression of Siri with a French accent about half way through. Although Siri has come under some scrutiny related to its inability to handle thick accents (and its inability to serve up abortion related results), we’re not sure we’ll be seeing Robin’s idea of localized accents for Siri’s voice anytime soon. That being said, some work on accommodating English-speakers with accents could be in order.
