The sound notification has stopped working when search token not found

Posted

i am using an iMac 27" with MacOS Catalina 10.15.1. Today I noticed that when I search a website for an unique token (as an example, 1234), and the token is not found the search window turns red but the sound no longer is used. Notices from Outlook and Chrome work fine.

Any thoughts? I ndo a ot of searches and the audio notification was a great way to get my attention.

Sorry about that. Type "about:config" without the quotes in your URL bar, hit enter, then search for " accessibility.typeaheadfind.enablesound " and see what the setting is set to

are you saying that when searching some token from current page, there is no beep and flushing of the window?

I'm a little bit confused. What does "Notices from Outlook and Chrome work fine." mean?
