    Definitely in the south; it sounded like a southern accent but with an ever-so-slight hint of either a Midlands or Southwestern drawl.

    I'd say Wiltshire middle-class.

    From the way I pronounced the letter R in some words, is it rhotic or non-rhotic? I think perhaps non-rhotic but I'm not sure.

    For some reason I've always sounded kinda strange to myself, at least compared with others. I wouldn't say I sound Asian, though. I think this is me (my tone) instead of my accent, though.

    Difficult to tell really. Definitely a southern one, but other then that sounds pretty standard. Don't think it sounds Asian though!

    Guesses are not too far off. I live right in the north-east of Wiltshire (although I was born in Bath; moved to where I currently am aged 4).

    You sound like a depressed middle aged man with a failing marriage and disappointing kids. Other than that i would say somewhere south of manchester but north of london.
