    Wouldn't it be great if there was an option to type in a word and then Siri asked you to say the word, and then remembered your pronunciation of that word for future use?  The one thing that really frustrates me is the lack of facility to train Siri.  If you can't correct the **** thing when it misunderstands you, then how can it possibly EVER learn your voice?

    I don't have an accent and Siri understands most of the words I say, but then she has no idea what to do with them. So getting her to understand you is only half the problem!

    Siri doesn't understand my french accent neither, even though it is not all that strong and people usually understand what I say. If I use the french keyboard, then it understands my French. Might be useful to also come with a translation software so I can dictate in French, then automatically translate to english, no?

    Works great for me. Here's my Conversation with Siri. It performs amazingly well on Indian accent.

    I have solved my problem/frustation with Siri and my spanish accent.  I changed my iPhone for a Samsug Galaxi S II and the voice recognition is much much better plus this phone has a spanish voice recognition option too.

    Never knew the Galaxy had its own voice recognition software. They should really tell people about it...

    When in my frustration I said: "cancel, you stupid whore..." I got back: "Michael, I don't understand what 'sell Houston peckers' means"

    For people with Indian accents-

    Settings>Siri>Language>English(United Kingdom)

    This is the closest you can get to making Siri recognise the Indian accent.

    Here, English with an accent from Argentina:


    - "Which is the next game of the New York Knicks?"...

    Siri replies: Would you like me to search the web for "meaning of the new mix"?...


    I ask:

    - "New York Knicks last score"...

    Siri replies "I don't understand 'Who needs to Natko'"


    - "Review for Oblivion"

    Siri: - Review for Pontblyddyn?"


    - "Is there any good restaurant in the area?"

    Siri: "Is England restaurant near me?"... "I don't have an address for Quingdao restaurant".


    - "Is Argentina playing this week?"

    Siri: "Urgent enquiries with..." Do you want me to search the web?


    In Spanish it understands me more, but here it comes the ridiculous part: IT DOESN'T UNDERSTAND ENGLISH!


    So, go ask for restaurants or movies... "Horario de la película ARGO" (movie showtimes) ... Siri: "ARCO?" Me: "Stand Up Guys"... Siri:"Estandartes"?


    So... it never ends...
