Python Sound (“Bell”)

audiomacospythonterminal

I'd like to have a python program alert me when it has completed its task by making a beep noise. Currently, I use import os and then use a command line speech program to say "Process complete". I much rather it be a simple "bell."

I know that there's a function that can be used in Cocoa apps, NSBeep, but I don't think that has much anything to do with this.

I've also tried

print(\a)

but that didn't work.

I'm using a Mac, if you couldn't tell by my Cocoa comment, so that may help.

Best Solution

Have you tried :

import sys
sys.stdout.write('\a')
sys.stdout.flush()

That works for me here on Mac OS 10.5

Actually, I think your original attempt works also with a little modification:

print('\a')

(You just need the single quotes around the character sequence).
