How to View YouTube Audio Without Downloading It

Hi. I am working on a Google Chrome browser extension, and I was wondering if it was possible to view the audio of a YouTube video without downloading it. Downloading captions works too, but a lot of videos don’t have captions, not even auto-generated. I need to get the audio of a video and run it through a TTS engine. Downloading the audio would work, but it would be slow on longer videos of slower connections, so it would be quicker if I didn’t have to download it. Any ideas?
