Greek Accent Helps

I was wondering if any of you who have taught or studied Biblical Greek have any good resources on studying accents? All of the Greek grammars that I own pretty much gloss over this area at most or ignore it altogether.

Have any of you made a study sheet that summarize the rules of accenting?

Dr. Carson has a great little book that is really helpful with this - Greek Accents: A Student's Manual.

I know this isn't quite what you were asking about...but has anyone ever recorded what Biblical Greek ought to sound like aloud? I want very much to be able to read the NT aloud in its original language and hear what it would've sounded like. Right now I suspect I read it with an accent like a Spaniard! ;-)
