Making text object only touch the text

As part of my game, I have a highlighter object that when it collides with certain text actions are performed. My issue is that the event will sometimes get triggered even when it’s not touching the text. I highlight this in the image below.

How can I change the text so that only the area that actually contains the text counts as the object?
