That's an interesting project, but the audio quality isn't good enough to tell anything about Bell's 
voice tone or intonation. So the article's statements are quite a bit of over-reach and imagination. 
It does tell a bit about Bell's accent, which seems more Massachusetts than Scotland. Note the way 
he says "hear" and Graham."

Also, the article is incorrect in reporting what is heard on the included clip. The article 
indicates the clip is "In witness whereof-hear my voice, Alexander Graham Bell." Actually, the clip 
is "hear my voice, Alexander Graham Bell."
