Accents and Dialects

by Tim Campbell

Here are some BROADLY GENERAL versions of accents that I use regularly.  Obviously regional differences, age, sex, education, upbringing, and a plethora of other factors influence every individual person's unique combination of speech idiosyncrasies, so in the context of a book or a VO performance, every accent would be more specific to the character.  These are just some generalized examples to convey a sense of the broad array of linguistic challenges voice actors face on a daily basis!
