7. I changed my results post. Looks like it gives a probability %. If so, it caught my southern roots.

And was pretty accurate.

It says I'm Midland 90%, southern 88%. This is somewhat accurate in how people react to my accent...sometimes they can't tell right away I'm southern, and ask where I'm from...I don't have a distinguishable accent at first. But THEN when I say a bit more, they can tell I'm southern. I think it's the "I"...that unusual drawling "I" that we southerners have...and sometimes a soft "R."
