Here’s some interesting news (or perhaps an opinion) about the Indian English accent vs. the Filipino English accent.
An article in the Economist Magazine states;
“The main reason for the success of the Philippine call centres is that workers speak English with a neutral accent and are familiar with American idioms—which is exactly what their American customers want. Of these, many have taken to complaining bitterly about Indian accents (which no amount of “voice neutralisation” coaching seems to have overcome).”
However, it seems that the Philippines can’t compete with India when it comes to producing highly skilled IT workers.
