Help solve the mystery of the Bell Canada 519 prefix voice!
Not too long ago, London and the surrounding area moved to dialing 10 digits instead of 7 digits to make a local call.
Whenever a caller forgets to dial the 519 prefix for a local call, a womans voice politely reminds the caller that they need to hang up and dial the number again using the area code 519 before the local number.
Do you know who this person is?
I did some detective work this afternoon and my search led me to Lori Kaufman, an Ontario based talent who has also worked for Bell Canada. I emailed Lori to see if she was the voice in question, and she replied that she was not.
Though it is not her voice on that specific recording, even Lori's friends and family have mistook that voice for her on several occasions.
If you know who it is or if you are indeed that person, leave a comment on the blog!
