Play sounds for interface elements in Narrator
Productivity is a huge part of everyone's life nowadays, and blind people are no different. We want to be as fast and efficient as possible, doubly so to keep up with sighted counterparts. Speech is a great way to access information, but for repeating information it just gets in the way. Sound is a better solution for showing what interface element a user has landed on, because it only takes a few milliseconds to play, whereas speech can be either the same length, or up to a second based on how fast speech is talking. These sounds could replace the speech of "button" "checkbox" ETC. This eliminates one more thing the speech synthesizer has to say, making Narrator more responsive.

I'm disabled. I was afflicted by a stroke. What am I supposed to do. I'm tired of just existing
Thank you for your feedback. A new feature is coming to Narrator in an upcoming update that will allow for document formatting to be echoed with a pitch change or different intonation when a font is underlined, bold, or italicized. Please look forward to it.

This is a fantastic idea. It would make navigation more efficient.
