Cynthia,

           See:  https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2010/01/25/word-find-highlighted-text/  and use find to find "find function" to get straight to the meat of the matter for the method you'll use.

           If you don't like that tutorial, then have a look at the others returned by this DuckDuckGo Search:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=MS-Word+search+for+highlighted+text

Check out skim reading in the training docs. I am sure you can search for a color, but not sure about a highlight.

Maybe.

Good luck!

Hi All,

 

I received a manuscript proof that indicates a missing resource is highlighted. Can I search for this highlighted text? I am using JAWS 2020 and Word 2016.

 

Thanks,

 

Cynthia
