How about a Scottish or thick Irish voicefont? (smile) Or better yet, a
Newfoundlander accent?

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.
