  1. I love Beneficial Cabbagepatch. keep these fun accents videos coming and more movie accents breakdown. Subscribed.

  2. “Accent: British”.
    Well that’s just insulting to Scotland, Wales and a good chunk of Ireland. That’s an *English* accent.

  3. is she actually Scottish? because that sounded like a yank doing an American accent lol

  4. wow for some of them I didnt understand and the computer did. they get smarted every day…

  5. You should try these with people who stutter , becouse sometime those AI do not understand

  6. imagine if there would be Siri, alexa and Google now mix product wow… would be scary awesome

  7. Me: okay Google, when was Wimbledon tennis match born?
    Home: Okay, now that’s what too ambitious even for my intelegence.

  8. I didn’t realise how much we Australians sub a T sound with a D sound until this video…

  9. Y’all should try regional American accents too. I live and grew up in the South and Siri & Alexa always get what I say wrong haha I dunno how it is for strong North Eastern accents.

  10. NOOO!!! I’ve seen your faces, now Probably Science is gonna be weird to listen too.

  11. I wonder if repeatedly searching for the same thing could throw these tests off. Maybe they’re using previous similar queries to guess the new ones. People don’t search for the same thing again and again in real life.

  12. you picked up really good American Accent. I usually hear very very bad accent from mericans
