    What is the accent of the speakers in this dramatic reading of Jane Eyre?

    Dear teachers,

    I have found a beautiful, fascinating rendition of Jane Eyre's audio-book online. Could anyone help me to distinguish the accent the speakers are speaking with?

    Thank you very much!

    The link to the audio-book:

    It's better to start with Chapter 1.

    Some of them sound English, some sound American, there is one voice that sounds Indian. There are also some non-native speakers, I would say French and Spanish.
