Our little girl is growing up. In iOS 5.x, Siri had a great deal of trouble understanding me. I was convinced that regardless of how clearly I spoke, the current incarnation of the speech recognition software just couldn't handle my speech patterns. As long as you speak directly to the phone, Siri now seems spot on--if she understands what to do with what you've said. Basic questions about weather, local points of interest, or the calendar, are mostly handled well. With iOS 6.0, using Siri with a Bluetooth microphone and speaker (note the Bluetooth icons in the Siri screenshots), yielded excellent results when asking about weather. Siri got it right, first try.
