Just poking around my system, which is using the MATE desktop. If I
open the Keyboard Preferences, there's a tab for Accessibility, and
button for Audio Feedback, which offers some features even when the
other assisitive technologies stuff is off.
In there is a "Beep when a toggle key is pressed" option, triggered by
(caps lock, num lock, etc).
I suspect this is an old Gnome / MATE feature, but it might not be.
Many thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, the opSys I am on doesn't have
the "audio feedback". And, yes, I am on MATE.
I cower owing to the anticipated reaction when I admit that I gave up on
Fedora "in its late tweens" and am now running Centos 7. But the
feedback mechanism in Centos is very poor compared to the Fedora lists
so I always hope I can learn from Fedora users to figure out Centos problems
