Are there any shortcut key for listening the sentence?

I know I shouldn't post it here, but I can't find FAQ/Help page in the site. Wondering any shortcut keys while working on the lessons, so I don't have to switch from keyboard to mouse so frequently.

This is a very important feature. A must-have. [EDIT] The shortcut is Ctrl + Space for playing the sentence and Ctrl + Shift + Space for playing it slowly.

I never have to use my mouse during lessons (except if I peek at a word). I use the number keys for the multpile choice, and the enter key to advance.


Ah, I didn't know the number keys worked for the multiple choice. Do you know if there's a way to play the "slower" voice prompt with keystrokes?
