Goal

Is there a way to search for a single letter within any word when using OracleTextSearch (OTS), since there is no substring operator available

Example: When searching for the value of 'w' in any metadata field, it should return the following results:

water, awesome, w&ater, w

If there is no way to do this in OTS, can it be done using a different search solution?
