[01:40.26]Lesson 90 1 Reading comprehension

[01:52.01]Read the text to find answers to these questions:

[01:54.49]读课文回答问题:

[01:56.98]1 How was one telephone connected with another in the past?

[02:03.53]2 How is one telephone connected with another today?

[02:10.19]TELEPHONES

[02:13.07]How a telephone works is a question which not everyone can answer.

[02:16.59]电话是怎样工作的,这个问题并不是每个人都能回答.

[02:20.12]When you speak into the telephone,

[02:22.15]当你对着电话机说话时,

[02:24.17]the sound waves of your voice are turned into electrical signals.

[02:27.50]你声音的声波就变成了电信号.

[02:30.83]The signal is sent down a pair of wires to the receiving telephone.

[02:34.11]这个信号沿着两根导线被送到受话机上,

[02:37.39]There the electrical signal is changed back into sound.

[02:40.51]在那儿电信号又变回成了声音.

[02:43.63]The earliest telephones were not popular

[02:46.01]最早的电话并不受人欢迎

[02:48.39]and it took a long time before people began to hire or buy them.

[02:51.62]过了很久一段时间人们才开始租用或购买.

[02:54.86]At the beginning it was difficult to hear people over long distances.

[02:58.55]开始很难听到远方的人讲话的声音.

[03:02.23]The wires which carried the telephone conversations were thick,

[03:05.21]传送电话的导线很粗,很重,

[03:08.19]heavy and expensive.

[03:09.96]又很贵,

[03:11.74]In those days,to make a call,

[03:16.28]you had to wind a handle at the side of your telephone.

[03:19.31]那时,你要打电话就得转动电话机旁的摇柄.

[03:22.34]This produced enough electricity to make your call.

[03:25.02]这才会产生足够的电供你打电话.

[03:27.70]You called the operator and told her which number you wanted.

[03:30.73]你要叫通接线员,把你要的号码告诉她.

[03:33.76]The operator connected the two numbers

[03:35.98]接线员把两个号码接通,

[03:38.20]and made a note of the length of the telephone call and the charge.

[03:41.58]然后记下通话的时间和通话费.

[03:44.97]The first telephone directory was printed in a town in the USA in 1878.

[03:49.49]第一个电话号码薄是1879年在美国的一个城镇出版的.

[03:54.00]It was just one piece of paper,printed on one side.

[03:56.67]那只是一张纸,印在单面上.

[03:59.33]In 1877 there were only 2,600 telephones in the world.

[04:03.54]在1877年全世界只有2600部电话,

[04:07.75]By 1990 there were over 300 million.

[04:10.98]到了1990年就超过了3亿部了.

[04:14.22]There have been great advances in telephone equipment

[04:16.81]电话设备取得了长远的进步

[04:19.40]in the last quarter of the twentieth century.

[04:21.76]20世纪最后的25年中,

[04:24.12]For example,

[04:27.05]radio waves can be used to send telephone signals over long distances,

[04:30.93]例如:无线电波可以用来传送长途电话信号了,

[04:34.81]often by satellite.

[04:36.58]经常通过卫星来传送的.

[04:38.36]The problem with electrical signals

[04:40.49]电信号有一个难题

[04:42.62]is that they get weaker and weaker as they travel along metal wires.

[04:46.00]就是当其沿着金属导线传送时,信号就会变得越来越弱.

[04:49.38]They need to be strengthened every3-4 km.

[04:52.57]因此,每隔3-4公里,信号就得增强.

[04:55.76]Light signals,however,

[04:57.59]然而光信号,

[04:59.42]can travel 150 km without getting weaker and their signal is clearer too.

[05:04.04]能传输150公里而不减弱而且光信号也比较清晰

[05:08.66]So nowadays,instead of using metal wires to send electrical signals,

[05:12.24]因此,当今不用金属导线来传送信号了,

[05:15.82]very thin glass pipes,about 1 mm wide,are used to send light signals.

[05:20.80]而用光纤管来传送光信号这种光纤管只有一毫米宽.

[05:25.77]A person's voice is changed into electrical signals.

[05:28.75]人的声音先变成电信号,

[05:31.73]These electrical signals are turned into light signals

[05:34.81]电信号再变成光信号,

[05:37.89]which are sent down the thin "pipe".

[05:39.93]沿着这种纤细的"管子"传送出去.

[05:41.97]At the other end,the light signals are received

[05:44.91]在另一端,收到光信号

[05:47.85]and changed back into electrical signals and finally sound.

[05:51.53]再变成电信号,最后变成声音.

[06:21.00]so that you can all speak.

[06:38.18]With some models,

[06:41.53]you can record the telephone numbers of people who you call frequently.

[06:44.72]你能把经常与之通话的人的电话号码记录下来.

[06:47.90]So,instead of dialling 12 numbers in order to speak to someone,

[06:51.18]这样,你要给某人通话时就不要拨12个数字.

[06:54.46]you only have to dial a single number.

[06:56.78]而只要拨一个号码就行了.

[06:59.11]3 Redirection.

[07:01.24]3,转移呼叫.

[07:07.23]you can have all calls redirected to another number.

[07:16.82]With some models,if you are speaking on the telephone,

[07:19.84]在有些型号的电话机上,假如你正在打电话,

[07:22.85]a signal shows you that somebody else is trying to call you.

[07:25.94]而另外又有人在呼你,这时就会有信号显示出来

[07:29.02]It also shows you the caller's telephone number

[07:31.59]而且它还可以把呼叫的人的电话号码显示出来.
