Or, change your speech and sounds scheme.  Insert, alt + S, will bring up a list of schemes.  Up or down arrow to a scheme and press enter to change.  Note:  make a note of which scheme you're running when you open the list so you can revert back to it when you're done.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Check out the skim reading tool.  I think it will do it.
