Make your Emacs sound like a proper typewriter. Extremely useful if you have a puny, silent, rubberish, non-clicky keyboard.

The sound of the typewriter was recorded by a person nicknamed "secretmojo" and is available on https://www.freesound.org/people/secretmojo/sounds/224012/ and the bell was extracted from https://freesound.org/people/knufds/sounds/345955/, recorded by "knufds", both available under a Creative Commons license.

To install it, simply add it to your load-path, require it:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/plugins/selectric-mode")
(require 'selectric-mode)

And then activate/deactivate with M-x selectric-mode. When it's activated, you'll hear a typing sound for confirmation. When it deactivates, you'll hear a carriage movement sound instead.

Alternatively, you can install it from MELPA.To install it, type M-x package-install [ret] selectric-mode

selectric-mode on MELPA

You can’t perform that action at this time.
