I like my Chicago accent, whenever someone in Indianapolis tells me "I talk funny" I am going to show them this site!

My personal favorite accent is the Czech accent. It just sounds really exotic to me. My godbrother's grandmother is Czech, and I love listening to her speak.

The Pensacola one is not representative of Florida mainly because the majority of us don't have a slight southern twang in our speech. I'd say about 2% have southern twang, 40% have northern accents from various locals, and the rest speak spanish.

Great resource, I think the West Aussie accent is spot on.

That was fun. The Texas one sounded like the guy that talked on the training videos when I worked at Wal-Mart. I didn't hear an accent at all in his voice.

Great idea. But you think they could've sprung for a larger map. My eyes hurt from having to squint.

Why only a small plastic snake?

The closest to my accent is "Staffordshire" on the UK map, the flag just above the "OM" on "KINGDOM"

http://accent.gmu.edu/searchsaa.php?func... almost makes me upset, because it sounds so much like my late grandfather, even where he says "sorry" in the middle.

I really can't pinpoint which one sounds more like my accent on there. I guess maybe the Pittsburgh, PA one. That one sounds least like it has an accent to me.

Actually, this one is probably just like mine. It's just that the kid speaking it sounds like a douche.

What utter bullpoo! Nobody in britain speaks like that, the reginal accents are -

Cockney, Manc, Scoucer, Brummy, Jordey, Yorkshire, West Country.

Oh wait that explains it... It was made by Americans.

Please call Stella. Ask her to bring these things with her from the store: Six spoons of fresh snow peas, five thick slabs of blue cheese, and maybe a snack for her brother Bob. We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids. She can scoop these things into three red bags, and we will go meet her Wednesday at the train station

^ wtf is with that passage? Maybe it is a good variety of all the sounds made in the english language or something but it doesn't make much sense!

The canadian ones don't sound like me (I recorded my voiced and compared..), they sounded...weird.
