Contains only about 2500 entries but is worth a try:

Re: Online french-english dictionary?

This online Phonology course, as used in the past for training US diplomats being sent overseas, is VERY comprehensive and will give you practice in making every possible sound in French. Then you can be your own dictionary with audio .

It's a bit dry, but you can't fault its thoroughness. And it's free.

http://www.fsi-language-courses.com/French.aspx

To use, first open the student text (takes a few minutes, it's a big document) then click on each 'tape' in turn to get the audio. Below the Phonology course, you'll also find courses for studying French generally - also very dry but also very good; they'll take you up to a very solid A2+ level.

Re: Online french-english dictionary?

That's excellent, I'd never have thought of looking there for French audio! (if you haven't seen it, it's a German dictionary, but you can select the French-German option and have audio for both languages.)
