Suggestion: Make spoken exercises skippable at no heart cost

The new voice feature has come a long way. It really does detect if I pronounce "ce" as "c'est". The problem is, that as far as French sentences go, this is really hit or miss. Some sentences work beautifully, but some are just impossible to do.

Please make these exercises skippable without deducting hearts. I don't want to turn off spoken exercises completely, because they really have improved vastly and are actually useful.

I agree too. It's nice to practice pronunciation, but at times it's impossible to get it right according to the exercise. Even the smallest bit of background noise seems to throw it off.
