With just a few clicks, our word count tool helps you keep track of the length of your text and how many characters and letters it contains. This is especially helpful if there’s a set length for how many words your article, essay, short story or report should contain.
To assist you with timing, we’ve included information for how much speaking time you may require for a presentation or a recording. You’ll not only get an idea of how much time you’ll need for reading the text aloud, but also the average reading time for the printed text.
