sounds like

Just saw this interesting post on Jeff Maurone's blog on an American accent survey. It squarely pegged him from Philly. Firmly believeing in the validity of short questionnaires to produce accurate assessments, I gave it a whirl. My results were much less interesting (and frankly, my voice is simply much too nasally to be on TV).

Take the quiz here. How did you fare?

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The 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.
