Hi, please help with this project. The idea is to map the accents of the English speaking world. Just read out the script below on a video or sound file in a strong natural accent. The files will be used to create a database, educational tool for visitors, and who knows, in the future all those voice activated apps and products might actually understand you when you talk to them. Please help, you’ll be promoting business in your region and be part of creating a use for the web that has never been realised before.
“Hello and welcome to the Accentbase hub. I’m talking to you today to help you understand my local accent. I’m proud to come from City/Region* and the city/area* welcomes tourists and visitors of every kind from everywhere, near and far. I hope you enjoy your stay. If you’re not sure you understood this clearly, please listen to every word again. Thank you for listening.”
*Put the name of your city or region into the script, and use city, town, village or area, whichever you feel is most suitable.
