In addition to that, there are some that do not count the spaces and punctuation marks as part of the word count so make sure that you specify the characters or the text that you would like the program to calculate.
Word counting is a must especially for those who are writing articles, novels, posts, theatrical scripts, a part in a movie and other types of writing. Most of the time, they are required to stay within an accepted word count range.
Typically, this is the case in legal proceedings, advertising, academia and journalism. Writers prefer to know that their entry will capture the interest of their readers, which is why they calculate the total number of words for reading ease. Aside from that, word counting is also utilized to classify the documents based upon the length. For example, if you have a document that has more than forty thousand words, it is considered as a novel already. If it has only around seven thousand words, then it is just a short story. Also, this can be helpful for web developers since they have to stay affirmative that their visitors will not lose interest in the subject or topic offered.
