Right now, Siri has trouble understanding people who speak English with any accent aside from a standard American white male. So does Alexa.
If you are not a white male who was born speaking English in America, you can help! Project Common Voice is seeking to create a library of speaking samples for people from all genders and all accents in order to improve accessibility to voice recognition software.
Just click "donate your voice" and read a sentence. There! Now AI can be better available to everyone.
(If you are already in Siri's current target audience but still want to help, you can validate other peoples' sentences.)
