Siri and accents

Just for fun: Siri apparently fails on a Scottish accent. Here.

In this skit from the BBC Scotland comedy show "Burnistoun," an elevator's voice-recognition technology is similarly foiled.

(From 2010, I think.)

Thanks! I hadn't even thought about that connection. I was in the middle of other stuff and just tossed up the little post on the Siri story and have been kind of wondering about the broader story behind it ever since.
