Some Highlights of the Word Count Tool

The word count tool is fairly easy to use,” according to the site. “You can directly type your text into the box. Or if you’re using a word processor or online tool, such as Google Documents, to write your piece, you can simply copy and paste it onto the text box.”

Here are some other highlights:

  • Sentence, character and paragraph counter. There are tabs for each of these functions.
  • Word Frequency Counter. “This incorporates a fun little way of playing around with data. The Word Frequency Counter basically lists down all the words used in the text and counts how many times they appeared and what percent of the text they comprise.”
  • Flesch Reading Score and reading time. “This is an especially nice feature to have when writing a speech since you often can’t tell how long it already is until you practice reciting it out loud. The Flesch Reading Ease is just the tool to help you determine that. The test uses a formula to assign a score to a particular text depending on the number of words, sentences, and syllables in your work.”
  • Word Count Per Page Converter. “This will allow you to know the total number of pages your article occupies based on the font and spacing you’ll be using, and of course, the word count. This little tool is perfect for assignments where your instructor just requires minimum or maximum pages.”
  • Converting word count to pages. Without a tool, it can be difficult to estimate pages, because the total count will depend on spacing, font size and other variables.
  • Other features. “The site features other tools such as the Character Counter, Scrabble Word Finder, Pomodoro Timer, and Mind Map”
