ABC Radio National programs with interviews of researchers and scientists speaking about the latest scientific research (The Science Show) and medical research (The Health Report). There are recordings and transcripts from interviews on many interesting topics. The online interactive transcripts give you the opportunity to 'read along' with the speaker and imitate their sounds, pausing, stress and intonation. The audio can be stopped and repeated giving you an excellent opportunity to practise the pronunciation and speech techniques used by each speaker.
