I read asofterworld and in the blog beneath the comic, the photographer posted a description of this link to the Speech Accent Archive
I do not know if anyone has posted this here before. I like it because I love hearing different people talk, but I figured I would share it to this community because it is very interesting. It has a great multitude of people from different places of the world and different language backgrounds speaking English. A few of the links do not have sounds, but it is amazing how much there are.

okay, so if you go to the link, do you think you sound like the person reading the paragraph who also speaks your native language as theirs as well? There is also 231 samples of English, so it's not just people with English not as their first language.
