Have you heard of Gloss?
It’s a site with a huge library of audio and transcripts in over 20 languages (Arabic, Turkish, Japanese, etc),
Some content is better than others. Most of the audio is a couple minutes taken from a variety of sources (mainly news) which come with PDF files that contain the transcript and translation! Enjoy!

Heads up - this site isn’t secure…I browsed it, seemed fine for me.
As a bonus, I found a few other websites that offer audio and transcripts:
Dictats en línia
Cantonese (there’s only a few pieces of content but I figured I’d share 'em)
Transcripts » Cantonese.hk: The views and experiences of an Australian learning Cantonese
German (great resource, thanks Juan!)
DEUTSCH LERNEN | DW Deutsch Lernen
Thanks for sharing these resources
That Gloss site is making my browser throw up a security warning - anyone else manage to get on it (or indeed, anyone else found that it is indeed infested with computer cooties)?
Yes, forgot to mention - the site isn’t secure…so it may not work for Mac users I’ll add a warning at the top. I went through the site, so far, nothing weird has happened to my laptop…
This is great, thanks Eric!
I got the security warning also, but it looks like the site is legit. Here’s a link that explains more about the organization:
Thanks for posting, ericobertz!
