On my links page [http://www.unibas.ch/shine/SHINE_Links.htm] I have got
1) Hear Books Now : Listen to a play on the internet.
[http://www.hearbooksnow.com/] (last visit: 25/01/00)
2) Audio recordings: Sonnets (Gielgud), Much Ado (Rex Harrison, Rachel
Roberts) Julius Caesar
(last visit: 22/02/00)
But are there not also software programmes that "read" texts aloud from
the screen, so that your student could just read any online edition?
