Find the words in column?


Is there any possibility to integrate "find the words" in a "column"?

I have to digitize word grids with long and many words, and after then, the users have to write sentences with the words. I have always created it on this way: "column" --> "image" of the word grid --> "fill in the blanks" for writing down the founded words --> "essay" for the sentences.

Is there an other way?
