    I take it that you meant "audio books."

    Amazon.com: Books on CD: Literature & Fiction, Business, Religion & Spirituality, Health, Mind & Body
    Google those readers' names to find their nationalities...

    Try to search "accent softening". That is the British equivalent of accent reduction.
