I can see the highlight move from instance to instance of the string being searched for. I can know, by sight, exactly where I am on the page. None of this is relevant to someone using a screen reader.
Dead silence during a search is a horrible, horrible idea as far as I'm concerned. You clearly differ, and that's fine. It won't change my position. I'm not going to encourage a screen reader user to use a technique I know will be problematic from the outset because they can't see.
As I've said a million times: Tool to task (which means appropriate tool for the person using it in the circumstance they're using it. I could use a teaspoon to dig a ditch, but why on earth would I?!)
