Goal

Is there is a way to make the Search accent insensitive for Applicants/Employees?
You might have accents in Applicant First Name & Last Name for Applicant/Employee, but ElasticSearch is Accent sensitive.

That is, for example  when typing an applicant name  without accents would it be possible that search might return also the words with accents?

say
1. entering "Jose" keyword;
to
2. return "José" also in the search results (in addition to "Jose")?
