Read my response to the first poster -- there will be a pref to turn off the sound.

A lot of people who are slower typists than yourselves will be using this feature. I have heard from a lot of people who want the sound but are annoyed by the system beep. Yes, they could change their beep from an OS setting, but not everyone is that savvy. The type ahead find sound should work out of the box, it shouldn't be annoying and the user should be able to turn it off.
