In the "title" lines of /etc/grub.conf, is there a way to add beeps of
different tones and durations?  Audible feedback could be useful for
blind and low vision users.

There are some patches for using an equivalent to echo 07 ascii code so
that when grub is booted you see a bip or two.

But if you wanted to add it to the title lines I think the easiest is
thing is implemented it in a way so that each title movement will beep
the number of the boot option.

So that if you have 2 as a Fedora Core boot when you select it you hear
two beeps.

That can be done hacking the grub source code, if you want I can show
you how to do it.
