[REQUEST] Chime before spoken announcements

Whenever an announcement is spoken it tends to scare the living daylight out of anyone in the same room as Homey. I suggest an option to add a short chime that is played before Homey speaks, like the PA in an airport or a train station. This will peak any residents attention, and they will know “someone” is about to speak. Having someone suddenly speak (loudly!) when you are alone in the room can be very startling.

I suspect you would like the “chime” to be a built in feature.
But you can already do that with the Soundboard app.

Ah, that is a good substitute. I would prefer it to be a built in feature instead of having to use an app for it, but this will be tried out for sure!
