To sighted users, the highlights are only visible through the way they are styled. There is no other way to know what they're for. Maybe the same should be true of the highlights? Getting the highlight itself described through some text sounds like it might be more convenient, but I'm not sure where we'd pull that description from, how to deal with multiple languages, or the potential discrepancies between the descriptive text and what the highlight is actually used for.
