    Since all text in this library is a-z, comma (,), period (.), and space ( ), there should be an optional feature to convert (upon searching) other common text characters to words such as:

    • : -> colon
    • – -> hyphen
    • / -> forward slash
    • _ -> underscore
    • 1 -> one
    • 2 -> two
    • 3 -> three
    • etc.

    Each word could be set to have one space on each side for better readability.

    Great idea but what about larger numbers?
    Would 100 be “one zero zero” or “one hundred”?

    I’d go for the first choice but wouldn’t that result in a loss of information as soon as two numbers are standing next to each other?
    E.g.: 100 200 = one zero zero two zero zero = 100200 ≠ 100 200
