first phone

by Austin Reber

Alexander Graham invented the first phone in 1876.

Bell’s research on hearing and speech were profoundly influenced by his mother and wife, who were both deaf. This work led to his experimentation with hearing devices. He was inspired to improve upon the telegraph and sought to develop a mechanism to transmit sound along far distances telegraphically. With the assistance of Thomas A. Watson, Bell developed an acoustic telegraph that was capable of transmitting indistinct sounds.
