Having the beep rather than the speech is more efficient than waiting for
two or three letters to be read in a file name.
A beep is not as intrusive as speech
The beep you hear it and then its over but the speech will begin reading the
hole file name which I would find annoying.
Plus, imagine for whatever reason your finger slips from the joystick or
wheel before you reach what you have been looking for. You will hear the
speech starting to read, so some people if they were impatient might think
they had reached what they were looking for.
The beep is a nice safety measure against this possibility.
