You've heard her voice many times.

You may have even asked her to help you find a good restaurant, locate a movie theater or for the best route on your road trip.

But who is the woman behind Apple's famous Siri?

Her name is Susan Bennett.

"The first time I actually heard my voice as Siri was when my friend e-mailed me and said, 'Isn't this you?' And because I didn't have the newest version of the iPhone, I went to the Apple site. That's when I heard the voice and I went, 'Oh, that is me!'"

Bennett says she started her life as a "machine" many years ago.

"I was the voice of Tille the All Time Teller, the first ATM machine."

Bennett says the Siri voices were recorded in 2005 for approximately four hours a day the entire month of July.

"When I recorded those voices, I had absolutely no idea where they would end up," Bennett continues.

Bennett, whose voice can be heard on various GPS systems, telephone systems and in airport announcements, says she thought it was a "little creepy" hearing herself as Siri.
