I just realized that I pronounce 'accepted' more commonly as " uh-sep-ted" than "ak-sep-ted". I'm nowhere near home (Maryland, USA) so I can't listen to see if it is a regional thing. Anyone familiar with this pronunciation possibility? Google seems unfamiliar with it.

This is a discussion that will take none of us anywhere. What's "correct" and what's not is meaningsless to discuss. If you pronounce it like that, that's fine, but a lot of people would probably say that it's incorrect. According to dictionary.com, the IPA is /ækˈsɛptɪd/, and I don't think the difference is that major between British and American English.
I have heard many people pronouncing accept as "uh-sept", in India.I don't think it is a regional thing.
