Generate English speech from text with a Canadian Accent.
English is one of Canada's two official languages, the other being French. Canadian English (en-CA) is a variety of English that is influenced by British, American, and unique cultural and linguistic features.
There are approximately 25 million English speakers in Canada, which represents about 67% of the population.
This accent exhibits several distinctive pronunciation features that set it apart from other English accents:
Canadian Raising. There's a noticeable difference in the way Canadians pronounce certain diphthongs in words like "about" or "ride." The tongue is raised more for the starting sound of the diphthong, making "about" sometimes jokingly sound like "a boot."
Cot-Caught Merger: In many parts of Canada, words like "cot" and "caught" sound the same.
"Ou" Sound: Often in words like "house" or "out," the pronunciation can lean towards "oose" or "oot."
Terminal "t": In some words that end in "t", such as "important", the "t" might be pronounced more softly or even become a glottal stop.
Rhoticity. This Accent is generally rhotic, which means the "r" sound is pronounced at the end of words or before a consonant, similar to the American style. However, this can vary depending on the region within Canada.
Influence of French. In areas with a strong French-speaking presence, such as parts of Quebec and New Brunswick, there can be some French influence on English pronunciation.
