[AI] Audio news

Many newspapers now feature audio versions of their stories available
through their websites.  A commercial offering of these is at
http://www.newsworthyaudio.com/ 

or simply browse newspapers on line and look for the links to audio versions
of their stories. If there is enough vision for students to read along, the
values of this service include hearing English words pronounced properly
while seeing it in print and a greater involvement in their community by
seeing and hearing a local news story, complete with correct pronunciation
of local place names and people. 

Another example is the Newspaper Voices project, which our organization
founded with the Vancouver Sun in Canada. You can see pages on this at
http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/voices/index.html

I hope these are helpful.
