It would be great to figure out where in a document is any highlighted text.

If one just wants to read what is highlighted, the Jaws hotkey insert + Shift + numpad 2 will read the highlighted text.

hmmm, jaws +f2 just says custom hilight and you can set the foreground
and background, but seems no way to read them.

One thought is to place focus on each of the options and, in each case,
press JAWS key+f to compare fonts, etc. This may be all you need.
Otherwise, it may tell you how the highlighted text differs from the
non-highlighted.

Subject: how to read hilighted text on web page

Hi. OI am using Jaws 2020 latest update and I can't seem to read
hilighted text on web page. What I am trying to read are options with y/n
choices and one of them is hilighted. I tried to use a different sound
scheme such as attributes and colors, but no joy.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
