Re: Edit Speech to skip text
I now see that these pages are Psalms, therefore written as poems. Each line of the Psalms is encoded as a separate paragraph (actually <div> HTML element), so @Voice is treating each line as a separate sentence. If you already set the sentence and paragraph pauses to 0, there is no way of further reducing them. To me it gives a nice rhythm to the reading, like reciting a poem.
However, I understand that you may want to speed things up. What you did before - copying and pasting text, seems to work best to achieve this, because only the text is copied, and not the internal HTML tags that separate lines, so @Voice is combining them into one paragraph (like reading prose, not poetry...) I'm sorry that I don't have a better advise for you.
