Why not use the same setting as for "speech on/off"?

If someone wants speech, they get the beeps as well; if they turn speech off,
they don't get beeps.

That seems to me to be a good compromise between everyone getting beeps
whether they like it or not, nobody getting beeps even when they'd like them,
and minimising the number of settings that the system has to store.

Obviously this combined behaviour would have to be clearly documented so that
people know how to get beeps if they want them, or why they get them when
they didn't realise they'd asked for them.

Regards,

Antony.
