Phone pioneer speaks for first time in 128 years

Intresting although I didn't have much luck playing the audio clip ..

The disc was too fragile to play using a needle so the museum, along with researchers at the US Library of Congress and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, developed an alternative play-back system that used light and a 3D camera to turn its bumps and grooves into sounds.
