What American accent do you have? Deaf, of course, but that wasn’t an option and it didn’t stop me from completing the quiz. The site identified my accent as Midland:
You have a Midland accent is just another way of saying “you don’t have an accent.” You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.
Based on the description of a Midland accent, it doesn’t surprise me. 11 years of speech therapy shows you how to pronounce things the dictionary way, not with a Texas accent. Got to admit that last line in the description of the Midland is funny.
I’ve had relatives claim I have a Texas accent because of the way I said certain things like “Dad” where I make the “a” last longer than normal. I’ve also been asked “What country are you from?” or “Are you French?” I don’t think a deaf accent resembles a French accent.
