    How did Alexander Graham Bell make the telephone?

    A:

    Alexander Graham Bell created the telephone through many years of experimentation with sound waves. Bell got the idea from the phonautograph that he had invented prior to draw sound waves, and this inspired him to think that it might be possible to generate electrical current that corresponded with sound waves. Bell thought that if he could cause the electrical current to imitate the sound waves, he would be able to project voices the same way that telegraphs transmitted Morse code over wires.
