I did some research and it appears like there are few or no online resources for Italian pronunciation (I hope that I am wrong).

Which text-to-speech engine is more accurate for Italian words among http://translate.google.com and http://translate.yandex.com?

    What do you mean by “IPA web sites”? The International Phonetic Association itself has a great website with lots of information about IPA. – DaG Aug 24 '17 at 18:25

    As for the rest, planning to learn how to pronounce a language from a speech synthesiser is like learning interpersonal skills from Siri. – DaG Aug 24 '17 at 18:26

I am going to agree with @DaG here. I don't think that either is meaningfully "superior", in the sense that to a learner both of them are probably very damaging. Try to get the correct pronunciation from websites that record native speakers (like Forvo) or from audiobooks and movies and not from speech synthesizers.
