InfoQuest Technologies Inc. of Provo has developed a new computer software program that allows a user instant access to the text of the Bible by word, phrase or reference.

The program, Bible Quest, is the company's first HyperSearch product, a trademarked feature. The user has the capability of searching from any word in the text window by placing the cursor under the word and pressing "enter.""You can instantly locate every occurrence of any word or part of a word in every verse of the Bible with Bible Quest," said LeRoy Maughn, marketing director.

"You don't have to be a computer expert to operate the program either. It is simple to use and easy to learn. It will almost run itself, he said."

All Bible Quest functions are controlled from menus and pop-up windows, users can look up words in any number of combinations with wild card and routine phase searching.
