Is it possible to use the question library "Highlighting Custom Ranges" on mobile devices?

We used the question library "highlighting custom ranges" and it is not working on mobile devices.  Any workarounds?

asked May 30 by Cori Guilbault
Many mobile devices may lack the input functionality necessary to support "Highlighting: Custom Ranges."  Would showing these respondents "Highlighting: Words" be useful for you?  That question could be modified to define selectable ranges beyond just every word if needs be.
Thanks Zachary!  That would work okay - how would I set that up to have phrases instead of just words?

To start, delete lines 51-84 from the footer of the free format question within "Highlighting: Words."

Then, we need to add "span.highlightingSpan" elements around the portions of the text that we want to be selectable.  Here's an example you can use as a reference:

<div id="[% QuestionName() %]_Text">

        <span class="highlightingSpan">Lorem ipsum</span> <span class="highlightingSpan">dolor sit amet</span>, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
        Ut enim ad minim veniam, <span class="highlightingSpan">quis nostrud exercitation</span> ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.
        Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.
        Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.
