This is a great tool to track the number of words that you have typed. It will help you to see if you have reached the word limit or not. It will also help you to know how many more words you need to type before you reach the target number of words. You can also copy and paste a document you have already written into the word counter box and it will display the word count and character numbers for that piece of writing. It will show the number of characters also alongside word count.
