If you have been wondering why the ‘Siri Voice’ we have all come to be fond of hasn’t made an appearance in a while it is because the voice-over artist has filed a lawsuit against TikTok for the unlawful usage of her voice without her consent. The text-to-speech feature was finally changed by the platform in light of the lawsuit. However, videos already uploaded with the feature are allowed to continue to use it. The new voice seems to have taken notice of for being less monotonous.

Verge writes,

Voice actor Bev Standing claimed that she was the voice behind TikTok’s text-to-speech feature and that she had never agreed to work with the company. Standing said she had done voice recordings meant to be used for translations, but that she hadn’t authorized use of her voice beyond that specific instance.

TikTok is said to have more than 100m users in the US alone and is believed to have many more millions worldwide. Ms. Standing’s voice is used in the North American versions of the app, with different accents in other regions.

Some TikTokers have shown their solidarity and taken it upon themselves to spread awareness of the situation and ask others not to go forward with using it.
