I am looking for something a collection of audio samples suitable for comparing the various German accents.

(This wonderful collection of audio recordings by speakers of various Portuguese accents is an example of what I'm after for German.)

PS: I'm aware of Deutsche Welle's Dialektatlas, which is very interesting in its own right, but I find it difficult to compare accents with it.

In my Google searches I tried various combinations of Akzent, Vergleich, and Hörbeispiele... I could use better keywords... – kjo Dec 23 '12 at 19:15

How did you search at Google?

I tried it with and found some hits.

Technical remark: Google forwards me alqays the the German version of Google. Perhaps thats a reason, why I get more results.
