Auto-Highlighting Text with Slides

A teacher in the help forums wanted to know how to automatically highlight vocabulary words in a presentation. This is easily done by inserting a shape, changing the transparency and adding animation. If you are looking to highlight each word as a student reads the presentation slide deck this is possible to do. It is a matter of setting the timing of the animation to appear after the prior or upon click.
