Search fails when seaching for accented characters with non accented ones #6687

Describe the bug
Searching for string containing accented characters does not work when using non accented characters.

To Reproduce

  • Create a page with accented character Bézier curve
  • On the built docs search for Bezier curve

Expected behavior
Searching for string containing accented characters should work when using non accented characters.

I am not familiar with how the search index is generated but something like this in python could help.

import unidecode
unaccented_string = unidecode.unidecode(accented_string)
