Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the beepPitch property to make the beep sound higher or lower.

Value:

The beepPitch is an integer between zero and 20000.

Comments:

The pitchFrequency is the frequency in Hz (cycles per second). A value of 440 is A above middle C. Halving the frequency lowers the pitch one octave; doubling the frequency raises it one octave.

Set the beepPitch to -1 to use the default system setting.

The beepPitch has no effect and does not report a meaningful value on Mac OS or Windows systems, and on some Unix systems which don't allow changing the beep pitch.
