I've seen this kind of thread done elsewhere before and thought it'd be quite cool to hear what you all sound like.
All you need to do is go to http://vocaroo.com/ and record yourself speaking. If you're stuck for something to say, here's a few lines from a wiki article:


And to give this a little more discussion, what are your favourite/least favourite accents? Do you like the accent you have?

I'll get mine recorded once I get this mic sorted out.

Somehow the bitrate which the service saves the sound in is very low, so it sounds very critty, not my mics fault to your acknowledge ;-)

Do not have a mic, generic TV/Western US accent. It gets the job done.

I have a Western Pennsylvanian accent, which is apparently very noticeable.

I've learned that people from my side of Cincinnati tend to draw out our O's into ohh. So instead of "home" we say something like h-oh-me. It's difficult to explain because I can't tell the difference by ear. All of my out of town floormates can tell though.

Oh, and warsh instead of wash. That one drives me insane.

I like the northeast cities accents: Philly, Jeresy, Boston.

Had to use the crappy built-in mic so excuse the quality and the odd sound right at the start.

I suck at reading.

I'm a Midwesterner, if that says anything.

I think Brooklyn accents are pretty cool.

I also ran the text through Google Translate and translated it into my strange moon-language. It was difficult to hold back the laughter, as it made absolutely no sense.

Was that a doorbell I heard? :unsure:

Why can't the Big Bang be done by the hand of God?

It could have, but it is next to impossible because it also could have been caused by the flying spaghetti monster, or one of the other infinite number of deity possibilities.

I can speak English quite well, but when I'm nervous, I speak English it a generic Finnish accent (the stress always on the first syllable, th -> t, etc. and sounds much "rougher"). I could record it some day.

I have a Minnesoooooootan accent. And I say "oh ya" a lot too. I'm without microphone, though so you're all going to have to trust me on it :shades:
