1. Normal highlighting

The normal style highlights each sentence and each word as it is read.

2. Focus sentence highlighting:

The focus sentence style focuses your attention on the sentence being read by greying out all other sentences on the screen. Like the normal style, the focus sentence style highlights each sentence and each word as it is read.

3. Word Trail highlighting:

The word trail style highlights each word in a sentence and keeps them highlighted until the whole sentence has been read.
