I was looking for every occurrence of an angel speaking in the NT so I used the above search and immediately noticed there are a number of passages missing. For example, Gabriel's announcement of Jesus' and John the Baptist's births, the Angels at the ascension in Acts 1, the angel in Peter's jail cell in Acts 12, etc.

This is a long-standing issue to do with tagging - the search function is behaving correctly!

However, the tagging is more specific - such as "Two Angels at the Ascension" and "Angel of the Lord" which is why they aren't found

There have been requests to have "category tagging" - so they would include an "Angel" tag as well but I don't know whether this will happen

So how does one run a search to find every time an angel speaks in the NT or is that impossible?

It's impossible, unfortunately.

You can search for all occurrences of angels in the concordance, but not all occurrences of angels speaking.

There have been lots of requests of wildcard matching in entities, but AFAIK Faithlife have never indicated whether they intend to add that support.
