On Yahoo! News, users can use Yahoo! We are making various efforts to convey news in an easy-to-understand manner and promote understanding. We also aim to provide users with a chance to deepen their
understanding of news with the “highlight function” that we have just launched.
The “highlight function” is a function that allows you to mark points of interest in a newspaper article or book with a marker, even in the text of the article on “Yahoo! News”. The target of highlighting is each paragraph, and you can highlight multiple paragraphs for one article. In addition, ON / OFF of the function can be set freely. Also, if multiple users highlight the same point, the number of people who have highlighted it will be displayed. The point with the most highlights in the article is displayed as “Featured Highlights”, and it is also a feature that you can grasp the points that other users paid attention to at a glance.
