 peter:

The bell does indeed work. in spite of my execrable hearing it comes through
loud and clear.  The only problem I have is that my pc makes the same sound
when I try to move the cursor past any text on the screen. I have set up my
pc to emmit all manner of strange sounds, according to what was available in
sounds. The bell seems to be programmed to what in win98 is called
notification. I could easily adapt, I suppose, if I were keying in text
where every line needed to end with a carriage return. I can use a braille
display. Perhaps someone who doesn't know braille would have some trouble.
