In the absence of a baal keriah


If a minyan lacks someone who can read from the Torah with the notes, they should have someone read without the notes, making sure that he pauses at the end of each pasuk, and ideally at each etnachta as well.

The minyan should not use someone who looks back and forth between a chumash and the Torah text, lest he end up reciting the text from memory instead of from the Torah.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:19)

Have a great day,
