25... pretty lame. I was usually in the right area though, guessed Germany for the Austrian and Portugal for the Spaniard...

Let's see:

this is an accented a
this is an accented e (open)
this is an accented e (closed)
this is an accented i
this is an accented o (there is also the closed version , but not on the keyboard)
this is an accented u

this makes me recall a swiss cyclist from a couple decades ago

his name was Beat Breu, Beat as in beatitude
but our TV cycling commentators kept calling him Beat like heartbeat or beat music...
