Would be nice if œ and æ would return results for oe and ae.
It doesn't work properly in 2.1.41+. A lot of results are missing in the search.
Since removal of the checkbox, how do I do a search that contains accented characters and where I specifically want to _exclude_ those results that don't contain these accented characters. In other words, it's the opposite behaviour of the original checkbox or of the standard Anki "nc:" search. Does my question make sense?
I don't like to write 'nc:' every time I use the search. (It should be vice versa: the ones who need to search for accents etc. should use a special syntax.)
@ the reviewer from 25.10.2014: I as a German native speaker have never heard of "Mahd" and had to look it up. It's limited to the south-eastern area of the German language space.
can someone help me please ?
Thanks so much for providing exactly the functionality I realized I needed. Works great even with combining diacritics.
Let me count the ways in which I love this add-on. This makes it much easier to search Chinese pinyin when you are not sure of the tones. Brilliant!
Great add on! So incredibly useful for Arabic! Thank you.
Please extend it to ignore case.
I use accents in Russian, and with this add-on, the search ignores them, which is great. I also use Upper Case to indicate accent, when I can't generate them from the keyboard (which is most of the time). This review would show 5 stars if the search also ignored case.
Great addon. It saves you a lot of time. Other great thing would be that if you write "ss", the browser search recognizes it as "ß".
Thanks very much!
Just to give a further example of this addon's usefulness - Duden and other dictionaries of German usually indicate short vowels by a subscript dot, and long vowels by a subscript line. With this addon, one can search for (say) “Mahd”, and the Browser window will display not only “Mahd” but also “Ma̱hd”.
This is a great addon for skipping any UTF-code character that you want. For my example: I am skipping diacritical tone marks and accent marks for Russian words. Just add the unicode-numbers that you want to skip to the addon code. Thanks a lot for saving me a loooooot of time. :))))) Maybe you can rewrite the name and description here on this website, so people searching for a UTF-Code skipping addon (generally, not only for Arabic/Hebrew diacritics) find it more quickly.
Highly recommend it! Works great.
One feature request though: I'm learning both Hebrew and Arabic; if possible, it would be great to see someone extend this plugin to also work with niqqud, i.e. also strip out Hebrew diacritics.
I recommend this for everyone using Arabic.
