You are describing a Powerpoint presentation. This would be very labor-intensive in InDesign but could be done with multistate objects for epub or publish online.

This looks interesting. Would I have to put each sentence in its own textbox? Or is there some function like a line break that will allow InDesign to see the sentences as separate objects? Thanks for the reply!

You could do it with animations in separate text frames or just build it with the MSO.
