George,

We simply use Beep(4000, 100).  I hadn't looked deeply into what that means,
but it appears that it comes from the computer's speaker, not the sound
card.

Perhaps being a Bell myself, I am privileged, since it works for me.

Although I'd hardly describe it as a bell, more a beeeep.

What I cannot determine from the sound, is whether is it supposed to be
coming via the computer's internal speaker, or through the sound card.
Peter??

Ah, thanks for the clarification.  So if I understand you correctly, if I
have 32 characters per line and want to be notified at character 25, then I
set the margin bell position to 7?

Regardless, I tried a bunch of different values, and I was in a braille
document six keying, and the bell never tolled for me. Does it toll for
thee? :)

Whatever number I enter doesn't seem to "stick".  Each time I get into the
Global, View Preferences dialog, the Margin bell position edit box is empty.
