Wouldn't It Be Nice? More Flexible Searching
Accordance searching has always been about precision. When you enter a word or phrase, that exact entry is found. Your search results are not cluttered with approximate hits. You simply find what you're looking for.
Unfortunately, that level of precision can be a bit of a double-edged sword—especially when you don't know exactly what you're looking for.
Now, Accordance has always had built in ways to broaden a search and make it more flexible, such as wildcard symbols, search commands, and fuzzy searches; but using those techniques requires a level of expertise that is becoming less common among new Accordance users. When Accordance started, the average computer user was comfortable using wildcards and Boolean commands, but the post-Google generation has no desire to bother with that stuff.
Wouldn't it be nice if Accordance offered an option to find what you want even if it's not exactly what you enter? For example, wouldn't it be nice if you could enter something like seek find and end up with a result like this?
Hmmmm. It sure would be nice.
