    Would that be possible? It would be very useful in a great number of languages using diacritics and there are free libraries available to do the job like Lucene.

    Can you write compelling examples?

    There is a great number of languages using diacritics web.library.yale.edu/cataloging/music/diacrit
    For example a simple phrase in French: l’été arrive à la fin. If one does not use the diacritics (or the correct diacritics) nothing will be found.
    Or in polytonic Greek: ὃν οἱ θεοὶ φιλοῦσιν ἀποθνῄσκει νέος

    Some software already does that, dtSearch (desktop search tool).

    It could be added as an extra toggle button like the “W” (for whole word search).
