We could make a function like M-x ring-audible-bell (but you should
choose a better name than that) that would let blind / VI (visually
impaired) users know that Emacs is working.  Or we could design Emacs
so that when they launch Emacs using the command "emacspeak", then C-g
will always ring the audible bell.

This would be slightly more inconvenient for blind / VI users, but IMO
much better for fully sighted users.
