A new voice recognition application has been launched which claims to recognise the Geordie accent.
The Evi application is the British version of Apple's talking personal assitant Siri which can answer questions and carry out demands.
Created by scientists in Cambridge, the Evi application also answers a range of questions but claims to be better at recognising regional accents.
Rather than searching an online database for answers, the application comes loaded with 635 million facts on 28 million topics.
Sky Tyne and Wear put the application to the test in Byker, where it delivered mixed results.
While some questions were recognised easily, others lead to confusion between words like "derby" and "dogging."
William Tunstall-Pedoe, the CEO of True Knowledge, the company that designed the app believes that the app will improve.
"All the technologies used in Evi are very challenging and necessarily a little imperfect," he said.
"She is also a first version. It was good to hear about some Geordie users getting good results and she will improve on this in time."
