And it's quite essential to a blind computer user like yours truly.

However, I find myself wishing I could have thelast action of the
desktop loading be some sound event -- so that I can know it's now OK to
start pressing keys -- to load my screen reader, for instance.

And, if this sound doesn't play that would likely be very strong
evidence that some message has popped up about something not working
correctly -- which just might be successfully dismessed by pressing Esc.

I should imagine making some sond file play as the last action of the
desktop being loaded is not a difficult thing, but I haven't a clue
where to put my aplay command. Advice on that would be most appreciated,
e.g. what's the desktop equiv of /etc/rc.local?
