Hi
This goes into a wiki page - you can't use uploader links - well you can but as soon as the project is catalogued the uploader folders are emptied and so it will return a "file not found" . Thus you need to wait till you have something catalogued

Hi Anne,
Does the following link of a poem, work as a sample for now? :)

Hi guys,

Don't know if this is the right place for this question, but I'm kind of wondering where my english accent has ended up by now. I'm not a native speaker, and my way of speaking has always been rather easily influenced by the people around me (going from rather American to English to Irish etc, according to people I meet). If anyone would want to give a listen to any of my recordings and give it their honest opinion, I'd love to hear it! :D
Foon - Please correct my pronunciation!


Readers needed:
NEW! Arabian Nights (Vol. 11)
Dialogues of the Gods (Drama)
Zeus the Tragedian (Drama)

I'm not sure why I've never done this, but I should!

USA-Texas
Neutral American accent
Although I've always lived in Texas, I never picked up the Texan accent. Many Texans I meet assume from my voice that I'm from one of the northern states, but I think Neutral American best describes my speech.

Just browsing the forums, found this, so I thought - what the hey?

https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/new_je_test.mp3

That's my first test that just got approved. I don't actually think that I have an accent - but you never do, yeah?

Any road up - just putting myself out there. (Don't be scared to contact me - I don't bite - unless you ask me
nicely! :lol:)

Erm... A few clues may be in order. I were born in Stockport, England. Dad were in tut Navy, so I lived in a whole
bunch of other places. (See? I can even speak American!)

If we are going official - most of my life in Hampshire (the original,) England (the original). (But whenever I lived anywhere else - I soon found myself speaking like the locals,
Maybe that's just a way of trying to 'fit in', or maybe it's inevitable!)
I have absolutely nothing in this world but time - so I beleive I should invest it wisely...
