I think it would be cool to have voice fonts of different accents.

My accent in ukspoken is probably what the BBC would once have described
as "received pronunciation", which for those of you not from England
means I sound like a posh southerner. Ah, the benefits of an expensive
education.

I'm almost tempted to do a Brummie or broad Derbyshire voicefont just so
people can compare. As to broad Glaswegian, I'm afraid I have trouble
understanding it, let alone speaking it.
