We are always looking for folk with wonderful, strong regional accents, who would be interested in making sound clips for us.

We have an ever growing need for great voice clips, for our Ringtones and also for our Accent Map Quizzes. If you have a great accent and would be interested to record some voice clips for us, or if you have a great idea for an accent ringtone (a fun phrase/sentence/local accent saying), we would love to hear it.

Here are some tools to help you record some fun voice clips. And of course, when you have some fun accent sound clips, we would love you to share them with us at

If you have a smartphone, it will most probably have an app on it for making sound recordings/voice clips.

Of course, when you have made your accent voice clips we would love to hear them. Please send them to us at

Audacity Audio Software

If you have a webcam or microphone, most probably your webcam or microphone came with some software to enable you to make recordings from your webcam or microphone.

If you don’t have a program for making recordings from your webcam or microphone, or you would like some more sophisticated software for your voice recordings, you could try using this free audio recording software called Audacity which will allow you to make and edit sound recordings on your pc.

Of course when you have made your voice recordings, we would love to hear them. Send them to us at
