http://classweb.gmu.edu/accent has a fascinating survey of
300+ different English speakers (including natives from a variety of locales
as well as non-natives of many different backgrounds) reading the same
paragraph.  You can listen to the recordings and view a
transcription in IPA, so among other things it's a good way to get a
feel for the correspondence between the IPA and actual speech.
