Task "(mis)understanding?"

This artwork, a signal bell, is not something you can see, but you can here it when the children of the Zeepreventorium ring the bell.

The tolling of a bell can be heard several metres away. How far can your voice reach? Go and stand farther and farther away from each other. Shout something. From what distance can you no longer understand each other? Can the wind help carry your message? Or on the contrary, does the wind work against you?
