How can I find songs sung by my favorite singers?
In individual search you can search by singer of the avaz or teraneh but you can only search by one search criteria at a time in individual search. After you choose the name of the singer you are looking for and click the search the Icon the list of programs that that singer has sung in will be displayed. When you open any of the programs and click on the name of the singer in the list of names on the side that part of the program where the singer sings will change colour making it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
In Advanced search you can search by several search criteria at the same time. You can select the singers name and then go to the name of the song and chose a song from that list. If you want to search for the song by the first line of the song or avaz you can do that too by typing one of the words from the first line then choosing weather the first line begins with this word or the word is contained in the first line. then you click the select button a drop down menu of a list of first lines with that word in it will appear and you can select the one you are looking for.
I hope this helps.
