Those are very good instructions.
I think Jaws can tell the user what the font color is as well, so if the person using your steps can find a character in some of the text, they can first find the exact color.

I’m going to provide what I hope will help you locate blue text in your Word document. The instructions I’m providing were done on a system running Windows 10, Fusion 2020, and Word 2019 so if any of my steps differ from yours, it might be due to that. Also, when searching for colors, I’m assuming whoever marked the color in your document used the standard color blue and not some derivation thereof.
From the top of the Word document containing the blue text, do the following:
I hope this helps but write back if the steps are confusing, don’t work, or if you have more questions.

I use Word 16, JAWS 2021, Win 10.
I would like to be able to isolate, in a word document, all the text that is in blue. That is the text that I need to study. I am not able to do this.
I have created a skim reading rule with blue is the text colour and white as the background colour. JAWS keeps ticking on pressing control+caps+down arrow after creating the rule. But does not read out any text. It finally says 'no matches found'. I know for a fact that there is some blue text in the document. Can someone help, please?
