45. This is just wrong

Waaay too simplified. Midland seems to be the default

Your Result: The Midland

88%

"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.

It would be nice if it indicated what all these percentages mean, because I don't know about you, but I can't make these add up to 100%

maybe it has something to do with USA exceptionalism "our accents add up to so much more than anybody else's - USA! USA!"
