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.

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.
