Search is case sensitive in user Bible module

Accordance 1.5 also has case-sensitive search. Please at least give us option to turn this off. It fetches no results if I search for person's name without the first capital letter.

Sorry, but in Unicode Bibles we just cannot do this, for now anyway.

I guess many people will be confused… I was confused because I know we have "Jānis Kristītājs" (John Baptizer) in Latvian Bible, but when I searched for jān* <AND> kristītāj* Accordance fetched no results. Very confusing, until I tried to capitalize first letters. Not sure many users will understand this.

Each Unicode language has its own definitions of what is uppercase. We just cannot take all that into account.

Pardon for pressing this issue, I don't know how you do search in Accordance, but isn't it done by lookup in some kind of index? Can this index be lower-case only? Or perhaps in the case of no results, Accordance could automatically retry search with the first letter capitalized?
