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!

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.
