Highlight your text
The typical method for highlighting text with color is not available in PowerPoint 2013. However, there is another great way to accomplish this using the Glow text effect.
Select the text on the slide.
Under DRAWING TOOLS, click the FORMAT tab.
Click Text Effects > Glow, and choose a Glow Variation.
To increase the glow, click Text Effects > Glow > Glow Options, and increase the number in the Size box in the Format Shape pane on the right.
