Search Alternatives: Should you be looking for a specific article, topic, name or keyword (such as "stroke") and are not sure when it was published, you can also use the powerful and VOICE-specific Search Engine. 00Search boxes are provided on each of the online pages of the VOICE (such as here). The search results provide access to the cover page of the respective VOICE issue and then quite often directly to the location of the search term. If the latter does not work, you still have the internal "Find" modality of your browser (e.g. under "Edit" in Explorer, Firefox & Chrome) to find the specific location within the PDF document.

The directory (below) provides the titles of the articles, their location (page number)to scroll to within each issue as well as likely key words or the name of the author to use for the search engine if you wish to do that in lieu of scrolling.
