Midwestern Accent

A Midwestern accent is commonly found in (you guessed it!) the Midwestern states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Even still, the Midwestern accent can be broken down into three distinct areas: The Inland North, The Midlands, and the North Central. You may not need to get that down to the granular details if you’re looking for a voiceover for your next project, but if you’re looking for a Midwestern accent, you’ll be sure to find a talent who fits the bill when you search the roster of professional voiceover artists at Blue Wave Voiceover.

What comes to mind when you think of a Midwestern accent? It might be the mom from Bobby’s World (don’tcha know!), Jerry Lundegaard from Fargo, or the Bears Superfans from the SNL sketch with Chris Farley and George Wendt.

Although Midwesterners might claim they do not have an accent (some have referred to the Midwestern accent as “General American”), there is a distinct dialect that is associated with the ways the vowels especially sound by lifting the A’s and fronting the O’s, according to this article by WBEZ.
