I would like to play sounds for accessibility reasons. Do I need to patch and compile (neo)vim to provide some sort of OnError autocmd?

edit: more generically I'm looking for a way to hook into console dialog so that speech synthesis can be used. confirm()'s optional {type} argument could also be of better use by playing an appropriate sound for error,info,warning or generic messages.

    and a further discussion on that patch on vim-dev with I think a newer patch – Christian Brabandt Feb 12 '18 at 22:01
  • thanks for the links. (it's not quite the easiest keyword to google) – Bart Feb 12 '18 at 22:29
