What Kind of Accent Do You Have??

I’m not sure why, but when I was younger I tried to avoid sounding Southern. I was born and raised in Stone Mountain, GA which you might think would lead me toward the stylings of Rhett Butler, although he was from Charleston and should also not to be confused with the former Atlanta Brave Brett Butler. It would seem that I’ve succeeded in having a neutral accent, at least according to this test.

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)


(“Midland” is not necessarily the same thing as “Midwest”) The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate. Since it’s a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn’t mean you’re from the Midland.

  1. As a voice talent, I can tell you that an American dialect with no discernable accent from middle America to the midwest is preferred in my line of work. Thanks for posting this test! You may have inspired a blog entry — and link — from me.
