Actually it is a typing sound. In the 1800s the telegraph used that sound, or at least somethingn close to it. So I know what that means.

Also, for those learning NVDA, I don’t think sound should be used.
Repetition is important in learning and hearing actual words would help those
learning both become more aware of the terms and perhaps be more aware of when
they are in which mode.

is confusing to new students of NVDA and causes them to concentrate on learning
when the automatic changes occur when what they should be concentrating on is

opinion, helps create understanding and helps concentration be on what it should
be on, not a secondary consideration.
You can change this behavior as well, if you

internet and brouser mode. Sorry if I wasn’t very clear with what I was asking.
It isn’t clear what you are asking about. Are you asking about

asking about the Internet and browse mode but that should be clarified.
