      No offence but even the English can have a problem understanding Scottish accents let alone a voice recognition app.

      That is true and considering the iPhone is made in California it is going to be an American accent which is all great however would mean it would have a hard time understanding some other accents especially scottish, irish and even welsh I would imagine.

      It's still in beta, support for other countries will come later and Siri learns your accent!

      Ah really? I didn't know siri learnt your accent, that is pretty good and yeah I can see what you mean about it being in beta which means problems will occur. Hopefully they will surpass this problem soon.

      I wonder if it would understand Australian accent

      Apple tend to release things to early IOS 5.0 Still in beta and it's buggy as all

      I agree Spudster they do, but I feel alot of it is because they feel pressured to with all the other competition from rival companies whom also release things too early and end up with buggy releases.
