That was until I spoke with a fellow from Canada who correctly pegged the accent I didn't think I had and said to me, "Oh, where's your accent from? The Northeast US, eh?"

I don't think he guessed I was from Pennsylvania, but I recall being so mortified that maybe he did and I just blocked that part out.
lmao

Everyone that meets me for the first time is usually disappointed that I don't have a Scarlet O'Hara drawl... little do they know how bad my accent was before we moved to Texas and how hard I worked to get rid of it.

But it sneaks in sometimes... and I can remember being equally horrified when someone noticed it once at work (I was stressed, and the accent slipped in). That's the worst.

You have a sweet voice. You sound like someone from a commercial, if that makes sense. Lol. Anyway, I love the video. Your baby is adorable!

Oh God! I hope people don't think we sound like him.

And we all don't sound like them guys on SNL skits either. I DO. NOT. say "da" anything. And, another does not sound like anutter.
I'll vouch for you! You don't sound like any of that, at all. A long time ago I met a curly that pronounced words in a way similar to him.

You have a sweet voice.

I hate myself on video. This damn thing took like 25 takes for me to get it right, and they ended up writing the last part because I kept flubbing it up.

the sound of my voice on any audio device works my nerves. haha. I think that's why I'm more comfortable on stage rather camera. Anywhoo I've been making hair videos for youtube and here's one with me being silly in the kitchen

Hehe, I have a Mainah's accent! Very different from a Boston accent despite what people think.

My name is Cahmen, and I live on a fahm.

Thats pretty much how I sound...

Your voice is spot on for how I imagined (and it isn't annoying in the slightest).

And that little girl is ADOOOOOOOORABLE.... omg...

Both you and amandacurls have texan accents when I read your posts but yours is more bubbly sounding, if that makes sense. (probably not LOL)

Some posters do not have a voice but mannerisms when I read their posts. I see instead of hearing them.

Yep. In my mind Shelli, Meg and Amanda have high pitched voices with southern accents.

The ladies who have mentioned they are from the North East, I picture them using their hands a lot when talk and having a deeper throaty voice.
I don't have a high pitched voice, it's kinda medium, not too deep, but definitely not high pitched. Kind of like Scarlett Johansson's tone, but I def have a Texas accent.

My voice is weird. When I'm happy and smiling, it's high pitched but when I'm sarcastic or angry it's low. I've never actually imagined you guys' voices in my head; everyone has the same tone: mine.

I don't think you have an annoying voice and your kid just makes me melt everytime I see a pic of her.

I don't have any audio. I have been told that I have a Canadian accent. Something about the way I say my o's. Someone once told me that I sounded like the movie Fargo, I was a little offended because that movie exaggerated the accent!

I do not say you betcha, or uffda, nor do I wear the elmer fudd hunting hat!

Last year in Nashville, I had many comments made about my accent, and I kept thinking I don't have an accent you do, lol.

I don't think I am high pitched either. Certain words the accent is stronger than others. I will have to record myself and post it.

My voice is deep - I think-at least it sounds that way in my head. I have also been told I do not have an accent (and this was from customers from the South) even though I was born and raised in NH. I think I have been influenced by the SO and his very Boston accent in the past 9 years though.

My friends and I call my mom's answering machine when we know she won't be there to hear my stepdad's amazing northern NH accent - very similar to a mainah accent (see CurlyHairedFarmer's post). My sister has her friends call it too - no one believes us so they have to hear it.

OMG! Your voice sounds exactly like I imagined. You look one of my relatives, and I imagined that your voice would sound similar to hers, which it does!

Nope.
My accent is 1/2 northern and 1/2 southern. Born in RI and lived there until I was 14 and then moved to GA and been here for 20 years. It's a crazy accent. I do pronouce my R's and don't say "cah".

Meghuney is the only one on here that's heard my voice before. She can vouch for my Texan accent!
