According to a tweet by the official Roddenberry account earlier this week, it appears that Majel Barrett’s voice was recorded phonetically and provided enough data to get her voice for SIRI-like applications and perhaps even the upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery.”
Majel's voice is recorded phonetically, &we're working to get her voice for things such as Siri, maybe voice of the computer on #STDiscovery—
