Category Sound
Type Stack
Introduced in 0.2
Removed in 2005

The beep block was a stack block and a sound block. The block produced the system beep sound as defined by the operating system. It was removed in May 28, 2005 for unknown reasons and made an obsolete block.


In early development of Scratch, the beep block used a system sound. In Windows, it plays the windows error sound, or, in some cases, the BIOS beep. The effect on MacOS and other operating systems is unconfirmed, but is said that it does nothing[citation needed].


Currently, there is no workaround to system beep. However, the start sound () block can play a beep sound effect:

start sound [beep v]
