WizDoc for Office
WizSoft, Inc. announces WizDoc for Office, a concept-based search engine that links to stand-alone computers or client/server networks. In addition to searching for strings, his search engine implements a new algorithm for concept-based searching; to retrieve documents relevant to the query's topic while minimizes misses and false alarms. Concept-based search enables interpreting of the meaning of queries since natural language and ambiguous words having several meanings. It expands the query via a user-defined thesaurus and displays the relevancy level of each page in the results report. The string search supports Boolean operators and searches for the sequence of words. It finds cases where the word sequence in the text is identical or similar to the word sequence in the query. Operates in two stages, the first stage indexing MS Outlook email messages (including attachments), MS Office files (Word documents, Excel worksheets, PowerPoint files), Acrobat PDF files, Web pages, text files, non-computer documents (brochures, business cards, etc). The next or searching stage has the user enter a search query and the system retrieves pages relevant to the query's topic. It displays the number of times the query was found in each page, checks the spelling of the words and names in the query and displays all the phonetically similar words or names when it discovers a misspelled word. Its indexing module is fully automatic, running in the background on a user-defined schedule. A fully functional product, limited to working with 1,000 documents, can be downloaded from the website.
