CSS and JavaScript provide access to all the elements of an HTML document – of course also to texts; however, this is limited to titles and paragraphs. Accessing single sentences and words is not that comfortable; unless they are wrapped, for example, with “<span>” elements.  The JavaScript library Blast.js makes sentences, words, and single characters accessible through CSS and JavaScript.
