User feedback requested
Since last release (over 2 years) ago I received very little user feedback, and this is the reason for project stagnation. If there is any feature/bug/request I could implement - dont hesitate to contact with me. Also, 20 votes are necessary to get into real ranking system - so please vote :) And if you do not vote for 10, please tell me why the score is lowered, so I can make improvements.

DvorakNG uses standard beep() and flash() curses functions for this. To turn them on invocate dvorak with -b or -f switches respectively (see also --help), or during runtime you can control these switches in configuration menu.
beep() should issue sound alert to your terminal - but exact behaviour depends on your environment, so you may encounter different effect on text tty console and in X terminal (e.g. xterm, konsole, etc.). The same is with flash. My experience shows that flash is better supported - almost any terminal is able to do flashes.
