Considering I have never been to the USA and don't have a clue what a Boston accent sounds like I can't say if this is accurate or not. I assume it is all based on how you say your vowel sounds, so maybe people from Boston pronounce their vowels like the Scots and vice-versa? Anyway it is just a bit of trivial fun so why not try it out!
