Searching WAIS for Images

WAIS supports natural language queries. It defaults to a retrieval strategy where each word is searched separately and all results are totaled to build a collection of results based on the maximum number of total hits per document. This search option will allow you to search the description files and file names of images. A newer version, freeWAIS, supports boolean and other search strategies. This is an experimental option.
