Most Scots know all too well the pain that comes with trying to use Siri, or other voice recognition software.
However, Google's equivalent might be about to get better at recognising Scottish accents, thanks to a callout spotted on Reddit's Edinburgh page.
The post went on to give more detail about the kinds of phrases volunteers would be asked to read out.
The data collection is being coordinated by a speech recognition company called Appen, which didn't respond to BuzzFeed's request for comment.
Appen is also recruiting children for the recording task, although they will need to provide parental consent and proof they're under 16.
In short, things might be about to get much better for Scots who use Google voice search apps.
