Apple reportedly is developing add-ons for the Siri interface that will include support for Hebrew, among other languages.

Sources told the iPhones.co.il website that Nuance, a company working directly with Apple, has rented a studio where sound bites and sentences are being recorded in Hebrew. Nuance is using a special developer’s iPhone app to make the recordings.

The report does not guarantee that iOS 5.1, the forthcoming software update for iPhone, will support Hebrew.
