Summary0017410: Sound Events: We should try to make MM report things in background thru sound events
DescriptionWe should try to make MM report things in background thru sound events as it increases MM accessibility for users visual issues or blind people and will give user sound alerts that some background tasks are done eg. Sync completed or sync device connected or RIP complete or ...

It is fairly easy to add MM to Windows Sound API and searching found clear explanation of implementation and we can just add option use sound notifications in notification options or directly open sound scheme by using command line "%SystemRoot%\system32\control.exe mmsys.cpl,,2"

Since we don't use system dialogs, it could make sense to play the default system sounds, mostly on errors. Docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/multimedia/using-playsound-to-play-system-sounds

Setting for 5.1, probably not really urgent, but I guess that it might help some users, so let's try to look into it.
