Well, better to identify the "type" or "name" of the event.  Then 
the user can configure how s/he prefers to have that event presented -
via screen flash, dialog, double-flash, ignore, etc.

If the actual content of the noise conveys information (for instance,
a spoken word/phrase) then we have a different category of
problem altogether.
