    Could you record yourself talking naturally and not reading a text aloud- reading aloud is not a good indicator of natural speech.

    Also, that's far too fast. You don't leave yourself enough time to pronounce a lot of consonants. I suspect you could make yourself understood quite well if you spoke slower.
