I will be discussing my voice experience with accents. I would go to YouTube and research .... Get the accent firmly in my mind.... I have many saved in my bookmarks from Arabic to Southern.
The easiest is The Indian Accent. They are wonderful people kind & friendly. All over South ASIA there are different Accents, not just Indian there is Pakistani, Sri Lankan & I am glad to be born in India.
The Texas accent is the most difficult because ... David Stern is a dialect coach who has taught Hollywood...
The long “i” becomes “ah”: In a Southern accent, the long “i” sound (pronounced “eye”) sounds more like “ahh.” For example, “tired” becomes “tah-d” and “bike” becomes “bah-k.” Ah becomes so tah-d because Ah was riding my bah-k from Houston to Austin.It’s such a long long way ah want to go to bed.
I voiced a Boston Accent & it landed a voice-over for The Church by the Glades in Florida. I used my New England/Boston accent for Voicing a segment of Frederick Douglass - The hypocrisy of American Slavery, 1852.
“ How should i look today in the presence of Americans ...There is not a man beneath the canopy of heaven who does not know that slavery is WRONG.
The Chicago accent is a more relaxed accent. A’s are very important & some of the t"s become d’s. The higher your voice is the more you get a Chicago sound especially with women. A deeper voice guy the accent doesn’t stand out as much.
For example : Dat guy & I are going down to 1060 West Addison to watch a Cubs game.
The whole idea in doing different accents is to see how much your voice can stretch....
