A team of researchers, led by Allyson Bieryla, Rob Hart, Daniel Davis from the Demo Lab at the University of Harvard  and with the support of Wanda Diaz from the IAU Office of Astronomy for Development have developed an arduino based device that will allow people to Listen to a solar eclipse. This arduino can detect the change in brightness and convert light to sound. It is designed such that sound will be a higher pitch when there is more light and a lower pitch when the sun is being eclipsed by the moon. The team will be live streaming the audio and video of the eclipse on August 21, 2017 at http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~astrolab/eclipse.html. The audio stream will enable participation of those who may not be able to visually view the eclipse. The website also contains instructions and code on how to build your own device. 
You can also listen to the live stream on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQt001v0oNY
