the sound is generated from the screen reader being used. in all cases, the sound is different when using NVDA, JAWS, or Narrator.

Mark, hopefully someone can explain it better, but the sound you are
referring to is to alert you that the caps lock is on.

for example, you start typing normally and press the shift key with a
letter intending to capitalize it, but the keyboard beeps indicating
that you actually are temporarily making the letter that you pressed
simultaneously with the shift key lowercase, indicating that the caps
lock is on. therefore what you have typed up until pressing the shift
key might have been unknowingly capitalized.

I checked, Bill, and yeah, some sounds are listed there. Thank you. But
in the case of the beep where the caps lock is on, then typing shift +
letter, that beep only happens when JAWS is on. Is there also a list of
what these JAWS sounds mean?
