To my ears it is a fairly neutral/standard accent, with a g/ch sound that is slightly softer than Netherlands Dutch standard (I think this is why I've seen people claim that it is a southern accent, although apart from the g/ch I don't really hear that). The TTS does pronounce it quite neatly (as in making every sound distinct and proper sounding), which to me occasionally gives off a old fashioned newsreader/queen's Dutch vibe :). But otherwise the accent doesn't really stand out to me in any way.

I do not know what the accent is, but I do know it is not a south Holland accent.
