I think what clango means is, that when you convert it to text, look at what you're typing and put in some extra words; for example, if you write something with the word "orchid" in it, put the word "flower" in there too as an extra word, so that later when you search for "flower" you'll find it.

For example, for a "passport" file, I might type in keywords such as "id", "identification", and "renewal date", so that later I can find it when searching for those phrases.
