[Kde-accessibility] System Bell

Being primarily a GNOME/MATE screen reader user, I may be way off base here, but 
there are some cases where I still hear a system bell, which is generally 
replaced by a sound when using Pulseaudio. Some of these cases include 
backspacing on an empty line in a text box or arrowing down past the end of 
shell history in a terminal. Alerts of this kind seem important to me, in order 
to give me an idea of where I am at times. I can see where a visual system bell 
replacement would be important to deaf users in the same way, although they are 
probably better able to see cursors and such. Still, there are some bell alerts 
that may not be immediately apparent without some sort of visual feedback. Hope 
this helps.
