Hello, Thank you very much for your good website. Nonetheless, there is a point which can make it better. The method of highlighting the words is too hard and time-consuming. I think it should get easier. Also, the participant needs a highlighting tool in the READING part! Thank you in advance for your time and for reading my comment.
Hi, Yasin. Highlighting text is very easy. All you have to do is select the words you want, then right-click on the selection and choose the Highlight option, and vice versa if you want to clear the highlight, but here you can choose the Clear or Clear All option. That's it.
