Trigram format definitions

This type of format definition is an error-tolerant algorithm where expressions are separated into three character groups called trigrams.

Important This type of format definition does not support Arabic or any other right-to-left text.

For example, a search for "brain" creates these trigrams: "bra," "rai," and "ain." Consequently, the search finds matches of brain, rain, train, and again. Of these matches, only one has all three trigrams, so "brain" is returned as the result with the highest confidence.

Use this format definition to account for OCR errors in a document, for short phrases, or a phonetic search.
