178 Bell and His Legacy

178 贝尔和他的故事

Alexander Graham Belle was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 1847, the son of a man who was consumed, passionately consumed, with the workings of the human voice, how it is produced and used, and especially, in teaching the deaf how to use it.

亚历山大·格雷厄姆。贝尔 在1847年生于苏格兰的爱丁堡市。他的父亲全神贯注、满怀激情地全神贯注于研究人的声音的发生和作用过程,特别是教耳聋的人如何运用声音。

In 1870, because of poor health, he migrated to Canada. It was not long before his success in teaching the deal to speak brought him to the attention of a wealthy merchant in Boston who had a deaf daughter, Mabel. Would Mr. Bell please teach Mabel how to speak? Yes, he would. And did. And they fell in love. It was she who inspired him through an of the exhausting experiments. who pulled him through the clepressioljs that often irtflict those whose drive to succeed is so intense, while he developed the then remarkable instrument that transformed speech into electrical impulses that could then be converted back into human speech at the end of a wire. he had pierced yet another solitude, the one that up until then had denied human speech between people distant from one another. A year later, in 1877, he and Mabel were married. He later became an American citizen.

1870年,他由于健康不佳移居加拿大。不久之后,他就以成功地教会耳聋者说话而引起波士顿一位富商的注意。这位商人有个耳聋的女儿梅布尔。可否请贝尔先生教梅布尔说话呢?可以。他愿意教。他教了梅布尔。他们相爱了。是梅布尔鼓舞他进行了所有那些使人精疲力竭的实验,也是梅布尔使他克服了不时产生的沮丧情绪——那种常常困扰着紧张工作去夺取成功的人们的沮丧情绪——使他得以研制出当时很了不起的一种工具。它能把人说的话转变为电脉冲,之后又在金属丝的末端使之还原成人说的话。这样他就打破了又一种孤寂,那种在此之前一直使相距遥远的人无法通话的孤寂。一年之后,1877年,他同梅布尔结为夫妻,他后来成为美国公民。

ALexander Grahahl Bell was showered with the praise of the world. Honors came to him from all the points of the compass. Yes, he would go on to other discoveries, many of them. But in his own view, he was most proud of his efforts to help the deaf.

全世界的赞美如雨点般倾注下来,荣誉来自四面八方。是的,他后来继续做出发明,多项发明。但是他本人认为,他为帮助聋人所做的努力最使他自豪。

So, when the government of France awarded him the Volta Prize for inventing the telephone, he combined this monetary award with the money hye made from selling the patent on another invention to establish the Volta Bureau in Washington, D. C. . Its purpose was to fund research on deafness. Today, it is called the Alexander Graham Bell Association. Its role has been changed to providing the latest information to the deaf of the world on how best to cope with their disability.

所以,当法国政府因为他发明了电话而授与他沃尔塔奖金时,他用这笔奖金再加上他通过出售另一项发明所得到的钱,在华盛顿建立起沃尔塔办事处,其目的就是为医治耳聋提供资金。今天这—机构称作“亚历山大·格雷厄姆·贝尔协会”,它的作用已改为,向全世界的聋人提供如何最有效地对付耳聋的最新资料。

Alexander Graham Bell died in 1922: Mabel five months later. She loved him that much. His name is likely to live as long as man recalls history. After all, there is this constant reminder of how he brought the human family into closer touch.

亚历山大·格雷厄姆·贝尔死于1922年,梅布尔在他去世5个月后也死了,因为她太爱贝尔了。贝尔的名字很可能。会像人类记忆历史那样永世长存。毕竟有了这样一件物品,它经常提醒人们,是贝尔使人类大家庭彼此得以保持更密切的联系。
