Summary

For the blind and visually impaired:

United States legislation about Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act requires that Electronic and Information Technology is accessible to people with disabilities. To comply with Section 508, the preboot logon has to be accessible by blind or partially-sighted people. There is a limited range of sounds that can be made available to access to the basic logon.

This document was created because DE/EEPC documentation does not include specific information regarding the 508 beep codes. 

If you tab or shift-tab between controls, the preboot emits various beep sequences to indicate where they are. Other beep sequences are used when an error is displayed, when password timeouts are displayed, and when a logon is successful.

NOTE:  No audible sounds were added to the About or Recovery screen.  This issue is being evaluated for consideration in a future release of the product. This article will be updated if this Product Enhancement Request is implemented in a later release of the product.
