She has a typical reading pronunciation. (she says 'de' as 'de' and drops too few r:s at the endings of words like är and var). She wouldn't speak that way if she wasn't reading a written text aloud, no one enunciates that clearly in everyday conversation. Her pronunciation is very neutral.

Also, I cringe at the way she introduces herself - Jag är Engla. It just sounds so stiff and unnatural, like someone used Google Translate on the phrase "I'm Engla". I would not recommend learners to do this - say Jag heter … instead.

Depends on what you mean by that. She had a tendency to skip over some letters, like in the beginning of "student". Most people clearly pronounce this word but it sounded like she was saying "sudent" or even "sdent" sometimes. There were other words as well but since this word was repeated so often in the video that's what I noticed the most.
