I found it a fun quiz to do. It caused me to think about how I say things and how others do. The app did not place my dialect because I am from Southern England but lived in Glasgow, and moving has modified my accent - this app showed me how! I recommend reading press articles about the research to find how this app developed and continues to develop. Great that the app now includes Scottish, Welsh and Irish accents.
Fun and interesting Although disappointed with my result (given outskirts of London when I live near Cambridge) I had fun. Maybe nuanced terms for speaking to friendly strangers could be used to pinpoint locations e.g. 'duck' - Stoke, 'Mate' - London/south east, 'chuck' - Leicester(?) as a few examples. However, the heat map seems pretty useless if the whole country is red
Hmm entertaining but didn't really get mine or my husband's. I'm from Sheffield living in Guildford, it put me in Stockport. He's mostly from Aylesbury living in Guildford and it said he was from Dorset. Were confused on the pronunciation choices for butter and house tho didn't really have the right one.
Fun but not even close It didn't manage to even get close with the region I'm from . Saying that however my dad is from north Wales and my mother is from Essex so I do speak a bit different from people in my area
The app says it's for "English Dialects" and has the flag of St. George on its app icon. What an insult to the Scots, Welsh and Northern Irish that this app also identifies in its quiz. It also crashed every time I completed the quiz. Fine for a minute's distraction on Facebook but totally pointless as an app. You'd never use it again.
I'm an accent mongrel It wasn't very accurate for me but then I've lived all over the UK. Moving from the shires to the West Country while still youngish probably hasn't made it very easy to guess. Couldn't reflect that in the post quiz survey.
Improved dialect prediction for England
Now also works for broader accents of Northern Ireland, The Republic of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
