Why not use an English voice artist?

...and if you insist on a North American voice, they should be able to pronounce words like "obliged" properly! I can assure you that it is not "uh-blarged".

The first warning sign was that "shewn" was pronounced "shoon", when any Janeite could tell you that's an old-fashioned spelling of "shown". It also took me a while to realise that the voice artist was attempting to do general English and Somerset accents at some points. If you can't do impressions, it's safest to stick to your own accent.

I'm available to read any American classics you might have in my really poor attempt at an LA accent, if you want me to return the favour.

Persuasion is a good story but I had to uninstall

The narrator was unable to grasp the emphasis in long sentences to the degree that they failed to make sense. I'm getting a better version.
