iPhone has problems with Scots accents

Now this was funny. Having developed speech recognition software for several years myself this isn’t surprising, I just wonder  how Apple intended for the phone to be used by people with regional dialects and strong accents. Not having an iPhone 4S I can’t comment on the speech training features of the phone. It must have some adaptation techniques that get employed during short training phrases or corrections but it just isn’t clear.

Anyway, if you’re having trouble all I can advise is huad yer wheesht (be quiet).
