Sorry. It turned out that this beeps came from a GUI screen reader,
Window-Eyes running, with speech and braill deactivated while in cmd.

One problem is left, which I'm not sure if it's a BRLTTY or cygwin

BRLTTY has a cut & paste facility. It sometimes doesn't paste all
characters inside cygwin. Pasting an att sign into a shell prompt, the
terminal beeps, and no character is written. Doing the same thing
after exiting bash, but still with BRLTTY running and in a cmd
session, the att sign is printed.

I'm not sure if you can cut & paste with BRLTTY without a braille
display. Let's ask Samuel.

Thanks and regards,
