In the past 10 days, Bennett has heard from old friends, people she hasn't been in touch with for decades. And while most close family members were privy to her Siri secret, some distant relatives were not, which has meant some reconnecting that way, too.
Strangers have written, begging her to record their outgoing messages for them. And wannabe voiceover actors seeking advice have reached out to Bennett, who's trying to make a point to answer each and every e-mail -- which at last count numbered more than 600.
But the most moving responses have come from members of the blind community. Bennett has long been a voice of many TTS, or text-to-speech, services, beyond the technology used to create Siri.
For the first time, she's received thank-you notes from people she's served, people who've relied on her but didn't know her name until now. Their common message: "Thanks for enabling us to do all we do," she said.
One writer specified that she'd helped him work his computer, use his phone and "read" textbooks. Realizing the tangible difference her voice has made in other people's lives made her cry.
"This can be a thankless business," she said. "It's so nice to know my voice is being used in a good way."
Bennett feels blessed to love what she does in Atlanta. She came home to her loving guitarist husband, her kitties, the lush trees and her quiet home. She's back with her community of colleagues, musicians and friends she couldn't appreciate more.
Between resting her voice from all the recent attention, she's getting back to work -- serving the same clients, recording in her home booth, laughing with the engineers who feel like family.
She doesn't expect this flood of attention to last forever. She suspects that most of her "15 minutes of fame" already came and went. If she continues doing what she does, she says, she'll be fine.
But she's open and excited to see what might happen next.
"Life is change," she said. "It's inevitable."
There's talk of a book deal and a speaking tour, two ideas that make her shake her head in amused disbelief. She's already been asked to give a keynote address at a big telecommunications conference next year. And if other new jobs come out of this experience -- like a cartoon offer, perhaps -- she would, of course, be thrilled.
"I'm grateful for all of it," she said. "It's absolutely surreal."
But, Bennett insisted, none of this has changed or will change who she is.
She looked down at her new iPhone 5S, the one she can't seem to figure out -- "Why can't I get e-mail?" -- and headed back to real life.
