Phone pioneer speaks: first time in 128 years

8 posts in this topic

The voice of Alexander Graham Bell has been identified for the first time, in a recording from 1885.

On the wax-disc recording, the telephone inventor says: "Hear my voice, Alexander Graham Bell."

The recording is among the earliest held by the Smithsonian Institution, which runs the National Museum of American History.

I can't listen at work, but I wonder if he sounded like Don Ameche?...

Definitely distorted though. Sort of a warble effect going on. Pretty amazing though to think this is a voice from a 128 years ago.
