PRAGUE – “Hey Siri, say something in Czech!” She can’t now, but it appears to only be a matter of time until she can, according to a local tech blog.
Siri, a computer program embedded in Apple phones that works as an intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator, has for years drawn intrigue as the future of AI technology, obeying a range of commands using only audio frequencies. Long available in English, a recent macOS Sierra beta has shown that Czech language support for Siri may be available in the near future, according to Czech-language blog muj-ipad.cz.
The blog shows an image of Siri speaking Czech as shared by developers using the latest beta release of macOS. Apple released the latest beta for developers earlier this week.
Back in January of 2015, text strings spotted in an iOS 8 release hinted Czech, Slovak, and Polish language support were in development for Siri, all three of which have yet to make an official appearance, according to the 9 to 5 mac tech blog.
