@bright_helpings Is it very different from English accents? I notice a few distinctive vowels but otherwise it sounds very "English" to my uneducated ears.
@ljwrites Oh yeah, it's distinctly Scottish. A "light," generic, standardized accent, for maximum intelligibility I imagine, but definitely not English.
@ljwrites @bright_helpings Not that I want to knock Scotrail, overall they're not too bad (which I guess might in itself be a very Scottish judgement. The only thing I'd really wish they'd do is enforce mask wearing). In Scotland, a train is only officially late if it arrives at its destination more than 5 minutes past schedule. I do like the announcement voices, they do sound a lot like the voiceover artist you posted. And the messages are real ones too.
