Well there are books in searching, but you can control your
putting quotes round the items to search will search spacifically
for that item online and nothing else.
You can add plus or minus simbles to search for extra items or
not search for items.
Wildcards like * can be used, now there are various books on the
net search thing, I forget where they can be gotten.
Your local blind organisation may have courses to teach people
how to use computers that are blind.
And sone of those could deal with the net, and searching.
Some universities and other places may have them to and these can
be usually free or low cost so I would recomend doing one of those
if you want that is.
Search engines can be and have been quite smart for an age now,
but they can get something wrong from time to time.
There have been a few massive foulups by google and others.

better than searching within the program’s own help system.
Some of my dearest friends are over 70 and 80, so the age thing
carries no weight with me.
You have, however, hit upon a really valuable piece of
information, that deserves reinforcement: It most often works
better to do a web search, using either reasonable keywords or an
actual natural question, to get information on specific programs
and features. There are tons of people who've "been where you are
now" no matter the you or the where, and a great many have
generated tutorials or just descriptions of what they did that
will generally be far more helpful than quite a few formal help
Not that one shouldn't avail oneself of a given program's help,
too, but I generally go there second because finding things can be
challenging - often times unnecessarily so.
