Implement other highlighters
Right now only Postings highlighter is implemented, which highlights single terms instead of full phrase query. Would be good to have other highlighters.
As said here : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42411353/azure-search-highlights-for-phrases-with-double-quotes
Thank you for your feedback. We’re considering this for a future release of Azure Search.

It's confusing from a UX perspective when the results displayed with highlights will highlight "the" when searching for "the quick brown fox" even though the results themselves only include items that contained the exact phrase.
As a user who is searching I'm going to feel like either 1) My search phrase was not used exactly or 2) The highlighting is broken.

I have implemented fuzzy search with '~' at the end of search term,Also added scoring profile with functions for boosting. when i do both highlights are not returning in the search results.
One of the major reason to have support for other highlighters is limitations of Postings highlighter especially around highlighting of wild card and regex queries. The Postings highlighter doesn't return any terms from the index scan for wildcard queries when a scoring profile is applied on top of them.
