” The voice of Alexander Graham Bell, the man widely given credit to as developing the telephone, can now be heard. Due to a remarkable break-through, Bell’s voice has been shared online for all to hear.In the age of YouTube and digital music, imagine a society that had no way to hear recorded sound. Just over a mere century ago, there was no recorded sound widely distributed the way it is today. And many of the bits that were invented are possibly long gone never to be listened to again.
Until now. As technology progresses, experts are finding ways to extract audio that was once thought to have been unplayable.
The Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History has successfully been able to bring a 1885 recording Alexander Graham Bell created back to life.”
