Frequently Asked Questions

  • TurboSearch is easy to use. You simply type the words, phrases, numbers or even alpha-numerics you are looking for into the search box at the top of the screen. If your search term is in the text, you are GUARANTEED to find what you are looking for as all words, phrases, numbers and alpha-numerics are indexed and searchable.

    Then you can use the forward and back search arrows to find the next time your search term appears in the text.

    If you only know part of your search term, you can use single or multiple wild-cards (a dot, or period, to search for any single character or an asterisk to search for any number of characters). You can also use logical searching with AND (‘&’) or OR (‘|’).

    If you are not sure of your exact search term or how to spell it, TurboSearch Spelling Help and Search Assistant will give you suggestions based on the document you are searching.

    While you are searching, the on-screen Table of Contents navigation will show you exactly where you are in the text. And don’t forget, you don’t have to be online to search with this award-winning technology.

    TurboSearch is very powerful search index of all words, phrases and numbers, and will enable you to find anything and everything contained in the publication. But TurboSearch – unlike Google – is a very precise search index. If you want to find the phrase “Behold, I make all things new” in the KJV, for example, you will find that phrase which occurs just once, without wasting time with all the many “Behold”s, “I”s, “make”s or other combinations of those words.
