It should be noted that Scorpio's work is technically an infringement of copyright. Its use could be morally justified as a secondary resource if one were to buy one of the recordings available from the publisher:

To each his own, but I find Orberg's recordings to be more intelligible than Scipio's. I'm no expert on the restored pronunciation, but Scipio's recordings don't sound natural. He seems to exaggerate long vowels and final nasalization, and there is not much pause between words. Those of the Wyoming Catholic College have more than a hint of American accent.
