For example, when pressing backspace in an empty terminal prompt users normally
expect to hear a beep (bell). This is not supported in the HTML5 client.
This has been implemented in upstream noVNC:
Note though that most users will most likely not be affected by this as
keyboard bell is rerouted to PulseAudio with modern applications.
This is fixed now.

Does actually work in Firefox on Android as well. The problem remains in
Safari, Firefox and Chrome on iOS and in Chrome on Android.
When debugging iOS and manually try to play the bell, we get a NotAllowedError.
Probably because the browser requires audio to be initiated from a user-action.
The Chrome developers will get back 2017-02-20 with a new decision w.r.t this.
Moving to '---'.
