FCC Search Tools (791 words)
FCC Search is the new full-text search tool that collects information from web pages and many types of documents including Word, WordPerfect, Acrobat, Excel, and ASCII Text, throughout the FCC's web site and the Electronic Document Management System (EDOCS), but does not collect information from the FCC's other databases.
Presently, the query searches on words that appeared in the Daily Digest title and in the description for each document, not on the full text of each document.
Although the best way to find specific FCC documents is through an EDOCS Search, the Document Indexes provide an alternative general listing that improves upon the basic FTP-style listings that were used prior to 2000.
