Highlight text in PowerPoint presentation when cursor goes over word

I would like to know how to highlight (or make individual words stand out) when I have cursor over individual words in a Powerpoint slide (mouse over type effect you see on webpages).  I have access to Powerpoint 2003 & can get access to Powerpoint 2010.

If its not practical doing this in Powerpoint please let me know.

Thank you

Do you know WHICH words are to be highlighted?
Would a click do instead of a mouseover?

thanks for your replies

i would like to know how to do a mouseover effect for individual words, not a click.

The mouseover effect in the above link does not highlight individual words as you move cursor over words.  I guess it could work in the example if you put a button behind each and every word but I don't think I want to do that.

If its not practical doing this in Powerpoint please let me know what might work better.

Thank you

If you don't want to do it with duplicate slides with highlighted words, you may be able to do it by assigning a macro to change colors of selected text to the Mouseover Action.

Here's an example of a macro that hides words. This probably could be adapted to your need: http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00662.htm
