I did this a couple of days ago so I do not remember the exact words. But is said something about the Northeast and either North Jersey, NYC, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Unfortunately it did not mention Long Island, which is obviously a far more important place than the four places it mentioned.

The part that disturbed me? It said if you are from New York City (and I mostly grew up in the city) then people will able to recognize you by your accent! Yikes !!!

Yeah, I got the Midland too..And I was born and raised in Northern California and my accent sounds just like my father who also grew up and still lives in Northern California descended from a family that's been living in small towns in Northern California for for over 150 years...

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.
Result Breakdown:
85% The Midland
69% The West
50% The South
44% Boston
41% The Inland North
39% North Central
33% Philadelphia
27% The Northeast
