This is implemented in GRUB 2 ("play" command).

Some feature that is useful for better accessibility to blind people is to
be able to produce sound. Just a single beep when the menu is ready would
already be nice.

A simple "echo" command that would recognize the ^G caracter would be
sufficient to do that (the "pause" command is a bit tedious to use for
this purpose).
