Many laptop models have those depending on the type of computer. My best guess is you either have a special laptop button system i.e. Fn(Function) key or you have some alternative mode developed or maybe even integrated specifically for that as with certain systems albeit that would mean more of a custom external system like a keyboard with volume dials rather than a Fn key or Alt mode.
On mines Fn -> F2 = mute, Fn -> F3 = volume down, and Fn -> F4 = volume up. Both Volume dials are in increments of two, makes sense for speed but can be annoying to fine tuning the sound a bit more of a limit of these old cheapy like 2-5watt speaker bar found inside the laptop.
Side-topic: (Proper sound support like proper Sound card/high-end integrated sound + better speaker/headphones particularly if amplified = better quality and higher volume of sound with lower levels, so what you can accomplish with good equipment lets you say hear at 10-15 volume level rather than lower-end 30-40+ maybe even 80-100 volume level).
Also one thing you can do to counter-act the effect is grab your mouse or use the laptop built-in trackpad, go to the minimize button on the top right hand corner or go to the taskbar and click on your browser tab on taskbar and lower the browser then switch the sound. I'm not sure if such a thing is feasible it might fall into the realm of keylogging or at least a check IF system, IF Fn -> F2-3-4 ignore count.
In reality once you do the F-RTR perhaps for a good 3-5 days you should be good with the pronounce. Really some of the hard ones are knowing the difference between fuuk and fuk and as well as some for Aid, Fehl-ah, and like two or three others I'm forgetting. Albeit I understand the desire to pronounce it perfectly even though I remember, I still like to play the sound beforehand it's only a moment longer and helps better.
So I perfectly understand your desire to hear the sound. It's not a criticism it's more like "keep doing a good or in this case better job".
