American Accent

Hi guys! This is Joanna from Amazon Polly. I am also hired by Dragoman. Join me to practise American accent, because Amazon designed me as an American speaker. Following is the same list of commonly mispronounced words in English. Listen to my voice carefully. And feel free to download this recording, and listen it later at your convenience!

If you need professional assistance please contact us. We can generate custom recordings in British or American accent for your personal or corporate needs. You can choose your favorite voice from our catalogue.
