Increase Playback Speed

Hi how can I increase playback speed without it sounding distorted?
I want to play the audio at higher speed so I can listen to the audio faster and find the places I need to edit faster.
But the playback audio sounds so distorted (unlike VLC or Chrome Video Speed Controller for example) that it makes it very hard to actually hear what the person is saying.
Can this be fixed?
Thank you

Audacity currently uses the “naive” approach to speeding up and slowing down audio: It simply plays back the samples faster or slower. There currently isn’t a way to use a non-destructive faster playback that keeps the pitch. This is something we’re working on however.

Thanks for letting me know.
Yes that is something that would be very useful in making editing faster.
