Three newbie questions (search, audio, exif editing)

Three questions from a newbie:

  1. Is it possible to search the forums? How?
  2. (Maybe this was discussed, but I don't know how to search :-( ) With many cameras (eg Fuji, Canon) you  can easily create a voice memo for any photo  on the memory card.   (Typically press a button during image play to record the corresponding memo)  So you end up with 3 files eg  DSCF1234.RAF, DSCF1234.JPG, and DSCF1234.WAV .   I find this very useful for taking notes for stuff not captured in EXIF, eg who is in the picture,  accessories used (filters, flashes, etc),  aperture data for adapted lenses, or simply "I promised a copy of this to Joe" ...  FRV can be set to move/copy/delete  these file as a group (bravo!) but is there a simple way to hear an associated audio file while culling?  Or even just to check that one exists?  
  3. Any recommendations for software to edit the metadata, eg add missing location, fix wrong time, add lens data for no-exif lenses, etc ?

Many thanks, -- Red

Hi Red,
regarding you statement #2:
My Olympus cameras have the same feature of adding audio notes to the pictures.
It would really be nice to have the option to display some sort of "attachment" icon on the thumbnail in the grid view. And/or have a filter type "display pictures with attachments only" (*1). Thus you could spot these audio notes quickly. And if there would also be a quick way from within FRV to jump to that attachment in the file manager (MAC: finder) you could listen to the audio and - if needed - write the important notes into the EXIF comments.
*1)  Of course XMP sidecar files will have to be ignored. Because there already is a configuation option to include "Additional file
extensions to copy/move with file" the software could use this as criteria for displaying the "attachement(s) available" status.
