Let’s get started!


Example 1: Make Beep at End of Script

If we want to make a beep at the end of an R program, we can use the beepr package. First, we need to install and load the package:

install.packages("beepr")     # Install beepr package
library(beepr)                # Load beepr package

The beepr package contains the beep() function. We can apply the beep function with its default specifications as follows:

beep()                        # Default beep

If you run the previous R syntax, your computer will return a beep sound.


Example 2: Different Sound Options

The beep function provides several different sounds that we can play at the end or in between your R code. We simply have to specify the sound argument within the beep function to a specific number. Have a look at the R help documentation for the beep command to get more information on the different sounds.

For instance, we can play a treasure sound by specifying the sound option to be equal to 5:

beep(sound = 5)               # Adjust sound
