Search tips

If you enter two or more words in the search field, the search results will include matches for any of those words.

To optimise the search results, you can use the following operators in the search field:

  • Surround a phrase with double quotes (") to search for the whole phrase.
  • Prefix a word with + if all search results must include the word.
  • Prefix a word with - if the search results must not include the word.

Examples:

  • one two
    Search for either one or two.
  • "one two"
    Search for the whole phrase "one two" rather than the individual words one or two.
  • +one two
    All search results must include one, and will rank higher if they also contain two.
  • +one -two
    All search results must include one, but none will include two.

    Word to pdf conversion

    This video shows how to convert a correctly structured MS Word file into an equally accessible PDF.  From Word's Save As dialog, we choose PDF as the file type.  Under Options we make sure that headings will be converted to PDF bookmarks.  Crucially, we also make sure that Tags for Accessibility is checked.  Having produced the PDF, we demonstrate how to use bookmarks.  The video concludes with a brief look at the Tags Tree, which provides the all-important structure for screen reader access.
