Hiding text in language being learned sometimes

I just realised today that while I've gotten a lot better at understanding written Spanish, and translating things to Spanish, my ability to comprehend whole sentences as spoken in Spanish on the site wasn't great. Because there is always the text in Spanish accompanying spoken language except when writing down heard Spanish in Spanish, in my head I am having to translate the spoken Spanish into written Spanish before translating it. I have tried experimenting with hiding the written Spanish during today's lesson and anecdotally I feel stronger already at translating spoken Spanish on the fly.

Is there any way to have the text that accompanies the spoken sometimes hidden, or an option to only show the text when clicking on a button, instead of needing to try to clumsily hide it with my hands?
