I am not an Eclipse user and so do not know if there is an appropriate tool in 
the Eclipse JDK.
If I were to undertake this problem myself I would consider making a small 
application to check Strings against each other which can easily be done using 
java.  I would copy both of the areas of your screen into separate .txt files 
and save them, then get the application to take each line or block of text in 
one file and compare it with the other.  You could write it to output whatever 
differences it finds or on which line.
Hope this helps

  Good morning Everyone,


  When we are doing a code review before committing code to the repository the 
sighted person has new code on one side of the screen and code which is in the 
repository on the other side of the screen. It is very very easy to see 
visually what changes have been made. What is the very easiest way for me to 
accomplish the same type of review? As always, I hate to ask for sighted 
assistance, but in this case I am feeling the amount of time spent on something 
which would take a sighted person minimal time to do might not be warranted. Do 
any of you have thoughts to add to this type of question?
