I think you are the first person I have ever heard who actually likes the
BNS's speech.  I agree that the Accent lives up to its name in that it
actually has an accent.  However, try typing the following words into each
synthesizer and see the difference in how well they are pronounced.

I prefer words to be pronounced correctly without having to create tons of
exceptions in my dictionary.  Speaking of synthesizers with accents, did
you ever hear the original Dectalk?
