    Hmmm... my normal speaking voice is apparently 60% American, 40% British.

    When I do a fake British accent, it becomes 88% British.

    Amusingly according to the test, my attempt at exaggerating an English accent makes me sound more American. My neutral voice varies between being 55% and 90% British.

    76% American and 24% British. Sounds pretty legit.

    Though I was more focused on speaking so carefully and not sounding drunk with that sentence so I may have to give it another shot at some point. Like when nobody else is around so if I have to repeat myself 800 times to get it right nobody will judge me lol.

    I also totally want it to rate my attempt at a British accent now lol.

    I'm 80% American and 20% British, apparently. Even though I'm neither and I just know English as a 2nd language. :D

    I tried with an abhorrent British accent and I got a 98% British result. :D

    Then I tried a Southern accent and got a 94% American result.

    (I'm having way too much fun with this)

    93% British when I attempt a British accent.

    One that made me actually cringe because it was so bad, but okay. I thought it would just be like "no fake accents please. this is offensive. Stop now. Don't ever do that again" lol.

    But... at one point I literally just took a deep breath and accidentally hit the submit button while doing so and it told me I sounded 60 something percent British.

    I like how it breaks down what words sounded British or American after, too. Very consistently my "ask" is very British, "to" also. But when I tried to sound British they came out American.

    Oh and I tried on my laptop after my phone, in a normal voice. It was like 70 something percent British. So that was kind of interesting too. Pretty sure my laptop has a way better microphone so it probably got a clearer recording so kind of interesting to note that.

    (I couldn't sleep last night, played with this way too much lol)

    I didn't notice that. I tried again using just my normal voice, and apparently my "Bob the frog" is British. I don't know why. :D

    82% American and 18% British and the I tried again and got 61% American and 39% British, But I am from the UK. It may just be because Britain is England and Wales and I'm from Scotland so I don't sound English.

    I don't have a microphone to test myself, but I can say that my brother, my sister and myself were all told, separately, that we have a peculiar accent. I guess it must show up on certain words, or something. I'm not even aware of it. I can say we were raised in CA around people who were here from Scotland, as in they had their Green Cards. I do often use the word 'wee' and I know what Scotty from Star Trek means when he says, "my poor wee bairns" referring to the ships' engine. :o
