This disclosure describes techniques to display text in a way that enhances readability through phrasal grouping. Using dependency-parsing techniques, sentences are automatically split into phrases. The display of text is adapted to phrasal groupings, e.g., using highlighting, with or without synchronized audio. For example, a text-to-speech (TTS) reader voices phrases sequentially while the phrase currently being voiced is synchronously highlighted. The grouping of text into phrases and their highlighting during audio-visual consumption by the user can improve comprehension.
