Disabling listening exercises online

Is there any possible way to disable listening exercises. I don't have headphones that work on my computer and I can't play the audios out loud as I'm in a quiet & public place when I use Duolingo.

Yes, hover your mouse over your avatar at the top right of the screen.
Select "Settings" from the drop down list that appears.
Disable your speakers.

Or just turn down your volume. When a listening exercise comes up, you can select "can't listen now" and it'll stop the type what you hear exercises for an hour.

Is there a way to undo that feature? I accidentally tapped "can't listen now" instead of submit and they got turned off for an hour. I know I'll have to just wait it out this time, but I'd like to know for the future. Thanks!
