While you can't highlight text in PowerPoint the way you can in Word, you can make text in PowerPoint appear to be highlighted using the Glow text effect.

Use the Glow Text Effect to highlight text

  1. Select the text on the slide.

  2. Under Drawing Tools, click the Format tab.

  3. Click Text Effects, Glow, and then choose a Glow Variation.

    Choose a glow color variation

You can keep applying Glow formatting to text you want to highlight throughout your presentation.
