Depends what you mean by easy.
CS4 adds speech to text, which might be helpful.
Otherwise, an addin like http://www.dvdate.ru/en/dvsubtitles.html might prove less tedious than creating loads of individual titles by hand.
It is easy enough to create titles, but coloring each word either requires a title per word, or you can do it the way I used to do it, which is make the text transparent and then use a colored box on behind it yo highlight each word. And then both layers sit on top of a third, solid, layer.
I have a collection of titles from one letter to 20 letters that I created to handle the task.
Of course, now I just animate the text in After Effects. Much easier.
Steven's suggestions are good.
You could also try having just two titles for each line : one normal and one highlighted and using cropping or masks to hide the highlights until they needed.
Sorry, but I can't resist the quote:
"Karaoke weekend at the suicide shack, community service and I'm still the mack."
Thanks a lot for all your replies. So, is that mean animating the text in After Effects is much easier than Premiere Pro? If so, how to do it in After Effects?
It is much easier.
Here is a tutorial to help you get started:
and then this one for more details:
You need to animate the color of the "area of effect".
Also, you can actually change the "value" of the text itself by animating the text parameter.
