Three of the UKs leading accent coaches present The ACCENT Kit: an invaluable tool and resource for actors, and anyone wanting to learn an accent.

Edda Sharpe, Jan Haydn Rowles and Richard Ryder’s highly skilled yet invisible work, can be heard across the creative industries, from Game of Thrones to the Royal Shakespeare Company. They are on the call sheets for all the major international film and TV production companies and on the rehearsal schedules for leading theatre producers and directors. Simply, you couldn’t be in better hands.

The ACCENT Kit app is free to download and gives you access to a library of REAL AUTHENTIC ACCENT SPEAKERS validated by experts for authenticity and ‘usability’.
Build your very own accent library at the touch of a button.
Only buy accents that work for your profile and character.
Or use the app to record people reading The ACCENT Kit and build your own accent library for free!
Downloadable kits include recordings of authentic speakers demonstrating the five crucial elements needed to learn an accent, set out in a simple, easy to use structure;
• FREE SPEECH: a 1-3 minute story of personal interest in the speaker’s own words.
• FOUNDATIONS: the oral SETTING, the focal ZONE and the TONE of the accent.
• PRACTICE TEXT: the speaker reading a set text containing all the speech sounds and combinations you need.
• WORD LIST and SENTENCES: all the vowel shapes of the accent together with practice sentences recorded by the sample speaker.
• CONSONANTS and PRACTICE SENTENCES: six consonant sounds that can make or break your accent together demonstrated together with practice sentences recorded by the sample speaker.

Each element is user friendly, straight forward and easy to navigate.
Tap the question mark at any time for further guidance.
You can also;
• Record yourself practicing the accent.
• Store all your recordings in your own library of MY RECORDINGS and PURCHASED FILES.

Marginally less broken: but still broken

Add nickname here please

Since the most recent update, the facility for restoring purchases now takes a bit longer before it fails. I get as far as 'downloading 0 of 1' before it hangs, whereas before it just hung. I still haven't been able to get at the accent kit I paid for, and there has been no response to my attempts to contact the publishers via email or Twitter. Is this app any good? No idea - I haven't been able to use it with the accent I bought. My advice is to not touch it until reviews start appearing saying 'works now'. At the moment it's like a vending machine that takes your money but won't give you your chocolate.

Does not work- do not buy extra accents

Antiesoup

Well I would have loved to give this app a five-star review but as other reviewers have mentioned it quite simply does not work. I paid for an extra accent and it won't download, just gets stuck on the page saying it is downloading. Today I updated the app hoping it would start to work. But No! So it has taken my money and given me nothing in exchange save a Truro accent that I do not need. I am not even giving one star because despite emailing re my problem I have had absolutely no response and that was a month ago. And judging by previous reviews this problem is ongoing.

Invaluable aid

Aiming for abs

I absolutely love the accent kit. It has allowed me to get as close as possible to perfecting accents without having an actual accent coach by my side. Definitely the next best thing! It’s easy to use and breaks down accents really well, thereby making it possible to get to grips with each accent relatively quickly. There’s a good range and I’m hoping more will be added in due course - especially South African!
