Can anyone recommend any (free to use) short audio material that has good quality transcriptions (eg subtitles) in chinese and english? I think the TED talks have this type of material, anything else?
I'm trying to make some of my own lessons material where I can listen to audio and get the transcripts with time-synced text. Also would be great if there was pinyin too...
edit: here's a game using sentences from Tatoeba project, with a text-to-speech engine: http://cgram.rikai-bots.com/magnets/?lesson=comparisons
but, the speech isn't that natural. Also the pinyin is auto-converted so it messes up sometimes.
