There are plenty of native-English-speakers to choose from on that same website, but none of them have e.g. their "her"s transcribed as [r\=]. The closest it gets is [@`] or [3`] (e.g. the woman from Texas - Personally, I can't tell the difference among [@`], [3`], and [r\=], so if you give that a listen and imagine that "cure" is pronounced to rhyme with that speaker's "her" and "brother", you'll be pretty close -Mark
