    how does this accent sound

    I have heard various things from people about how my accent sounds

    I recorded myself reading a current article from NY Times. The text is at http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/24/bo...tml?ref=review

    What do you think?

    Recorded after a tiring day and was reading fast/naturally so re-read some words and was unclear on some others.

    To me, you sound south Asian (India/Pakistan) with some American influences.
