I do not know either of you but I am increasingly disturbed by the derogatory comments which are routinely appearing on the list and which personally makes uncomfortable reading for me. I have tried to ignore it but it is becoming tiresome.
I just wonder what the point is criticising Brian in this way? Visually impaired people have often used sounds to help them with access. Microsoft actually developed an entire Office sound Scheme recognising the usefulness of sound feedback for certain users. The fact that you are happy not receiving sound feedback is great but this does not invalidate other user prefernces or make them any less of a fine human being than you are. The strength of the Windows system over the years is that it has allowed flexibility of user interaction with the OS and applications and has not forced anybody into a straitjacket.
I Think you should avoid these judgemental personal criticisms of other users and their preferences.

See Sarah gets it! I 2000 percent agree with you Sarah. Brian in England can’t get rid of his security blankie. I’ve been using FF without any sounds at all for years. It does get in the way.

I really don't see why you need navigational sounds. I mean you have our heading nav and you can tell when a page loads etc. To me they are more of a pain than helpful. I'd say learn how to use your key strokes and pay attention to what's going on around you rather than rely on sounds.
