> Another feature that would be useful to partially sighted users would
> be to draw a frame around the word being spoken during continuous
> reading, and also around the locus of focus which allows to easily
> find it out when it changes.
> This would actually help with sighted people working with non-sighted
> people, to be able to know what they are currently reading, to let
> the non-sighted user easily point out something on the screen by just
> bringing the screen reader on it.
