It sounds like the item chooser is the way to go.

 So I tried this, and it appears to work. However, when I click on find the 
text he told me the number of matches, but would not let me pick which one, or 
bring it to one.

Did you flick once more to the line “Find XXX?”
Double tap on find xxx, where xxx is the word you searched for and see if that 
helps.
I’m not sure after trying it again if it is as good as it used to be.
I thought it would take you right to the first occurance.
Perhaps the item chooser approach that Anna mentioned is a better one.

 Richard,

Thanks for these detailed instructions on how to find text on a Safari web 
page. I followed your instructions and after clearing the text in the search 
bar and typing the text I wanted to search for, I single finger swiped right 
through a list of web pages until I reached a heading that said On this page 9 
matches. Unfortunately, double tapping on that heading didn't take me to those 
matched items. I could not figure out how to get to the matches and I'm hoping 
someone can further direct me.

Thanks for the help.

Try double tapping in the address bar with one finger, clear the text that is 
there, then type the word you want to find on that page.
Do not double tap the search button, but instead flick right with one finger, 
you will find an option to find on page, or it may do it automatically. Either 
way you can find on page that way.
HTH,
Richard

One way might be two finger triple tap which opens up the item chooser and the 
first thing there is a search field. You use the scrub gesture to get out of it.

 Does anyone know if it is possible to search for text on a website or any 
document with voiceover without a braille display?

Thanks.
