so another idea I'm willing to validate.
I'm from Germany and speaking in English is sometimes a good joke for others when the accent hit hard. xD
I don't mind accents at all but I noticed when I was working in the UK that I was self-conscious about my pronunciation.
Also some of my coworkers from Asia or East-Europe had similar issues.
At some point this is silly because everyone has an accent but still there was an issue. Once you want to climb up the latter, communication and self presentation becomes more and more important.
And been caged by ones own accent seems an unnecessary restriction.
Is there a demand for a "service/course" where you could "buy" an accent?
Maybe a 10-week-course by some native speaker.
What do you think?
(I'm willing to team up -> hit me on twitter)
Would it not be great to choose ones own accent?
One other use case I found is because teams are more and more globally distributed, there might be a demand to soften hard accents a bit for better communication.
I checked the high ranking tech officers (with accents) and every single of them worked on their accents. You still can hear it of course but it was reduced to a point where communication goes smoothly.
I adjusted my hypothesis to "There is a need to learn effective communication for a specific domain".
I just released a new landing page.
