LibriVox

LibriVox is a platform where independent users share partial or complete audiobooks, which they have recorded themselves. It allows teachers and students of different foreign languages to browse the catalogue by author, title, genre or language and to download the available audiobooks for free.These audio files are of public domain in the USA, but it may be necessary to verify their copyright status in order to use them for public purposes in other countries.

Evaluation: The interface is very simple and easy to use. It is possible both to listen the audios on streaming and to download them. The accent and delivery are varied, as those who record themselves are volunteers. There are many titles available in some languages (especially in English) but very few in others.

Cost: Free without registration
