Optionally play sounds when toggling screen curtain #10611

Note: filed against beta.

Link to issue number:

Fixes #10602
Closes #10476

Summary of the issue:

There is currently no audible indication of the screen curtain turning on/off due to a configuration profile change.

Description of how this pull request fixes the issue:

Add screen curtain on/off sounds, provided by Andre Louis. Also make sure that the screen curtain is only activated once (i.e not reinitialized) when enabling permanently.

Testing performed:

Tested enabling/disabling the curtain using a config profile and the global command script.

Known issues with pull request:

While this strictly spoken does not fix #10476, I think having the ability to enable screen curtain in one profile while disabling it in another has too much benefits to justify making it a global setting. Specifying what settings should be global is a different issue.

Change log entry:

None needed

Two important things, both in user guide:

  1. Vision/screen curtain section: can you add a brief note about sounds to indicate screen curtain toggle?
  2. In line 1399: screen curtain is misspelled.

A minor thing about Andre's sounds: the "on" sound is heard predominantly from the left side. I think we should compensate for that somehow (or it could be my hearing or my headset).

is just my mind or is the sound (ON / OFF) not clear enough?
I can identify it, but it could be difficult for people with hearing loss.
