Re: beeps

Hi Eilana,

Are you using NVDA 2020.1 beta 1?  If so, that will play a sound when an error is written to the log.  Often NVDA will try something else and overcome whatever the error is so the end user won't notice, except in these pre-release versions (alpha and beta versions).

If it is a sound increasing in pitch, then that is played while a progress bar loads.  You can toggle that directly with NVDA+u, or from NVDA's object presentation settings (NVDA+control+o, then tab through).

Otherwise, if it's an add-on, I'll leave it to others to advise.

Kind regards
