Australian accent here.

This would be an example of it being cranked up to maximum: https://librivox.org/bill-doreens-courtship-selections-from-the-songs-of-a-sentimental-bloke-by-c-j-dennis/

Chris: I´m sure there will be a text for you to read. At the moment we really lack male readers. However, none of the texts that are completed would work with an Australian accent (this is strictly a narrative issue). Would you be able to do it a bit more toned down?

Oh sure. My natural voice is Australian, though when I narrate I try to take the edge off the accent and aim for a more neutral-to-British sound.

I'm a bit relieved you don't want the full Scottish accent - I learned it for that role specifically and I'm not sure I could do it again for any length of time! That was only a small role, luckily!

Devorah: We would definitely be keen on using your voice. If I´m not wrong you have a kind of neutral American accent? If you are willing to try it out we could send you a text we think suitable.
Yes, I'd be willing to try it. I do think of my accent as a kind of neutral American. Sometimes with just a touch of Texan thrown in, as that's where I grew up. But many Texans I meet on a daily basis assume, from my voice, that I'm from somewhere else! :lol:

I think your accent on the recordings I heard was perfect, we just need find a suitable text for you.

Does any of you know if there are some male Scottish readers on here? We also need some male, mature voices. Recommendations are really appreciated!

Hello -

Sounds very interesting. I have a Northern Irish accent.

I am new to Librivox, but here is a sample of my voice recorded: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_Horner94.mp3

Look forward to hearing back from you.



Regards,
Chad

Hello Chad!

Thanks for showing interest. I really like your voice and your accent. The audio quality is very poor though. Would you be able to improve this? I will PM you shortly.
