UI sound effects #5821
Many apps use subtle sound effects to reinforce their interfaces and give audial feedback. Messaging apps bloop upon sending, video and sound editing apps click when snapping clips end-to-end, and various apps thunk upon errors. Games widely use sound effects for all sorts of input like button presses and focus changes.
There are various places in iD where I think minor, tasteful sound effects could create a richer editing experience and help the vision-impaired.
Of course users would be able to mute sounds at any time.
Yeah, back in the days, Potlatch 0.10c had a nifty beep sound when saving a changeset. That was like 11 years ago.
And it's still around today: https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/blob/master/public/potlatch/beep.mp3
