Karen Jacobsen is known as the “only woman men will take directions from.” She’s an Australian voice actor who recorded the first-ever GPS voice system. This was back in 2002 when she was a singer doing auditions in New York City.
She’s now heard in over one billion GPS and smartphone devices. She talked about her career in a recent interview. She remembers them making her say “approximately” 168 times. She also does the famous “recalculating” voice.
