Mediaclasse: a vlog entitled "La littérature analysée et illustrée en vidéo pour les lycéens, les étudiants en Lettres et
pour tous les passionnés de culture !"

On offer are roughly 200 video analyses of various French writers from the classics through the 19th century. The vlogger speaks at, If not "street-French" speed, at least normal conversational speed. Quite useful is the fact that many but not all of the videos have subtitles.

Here is one of the lectures from Oeuvres et Analyses: Balzac

The vlog also links to five other vloggers, (under the heading la Communauté), with similar content, though few of their videos have subtitles.

I like the format of the dictations on Dictaly, the fact that you can replay individual sentences at a click of a button is great! However, I quickly hit a snag because the special character list is too limited. I guess they expect us to have the means to put accents on lower case vowels quickly, but I still don't.

A site I use occasionally (and really should use more often) is https://dictee.orthodidacte.com/. However, the problem is that the dictation comes from a video and you are forced to listen to all the repititions, even if you are finished with a sentence.
