Is there a way to count the words entered into a text entry field? By Nancy Woinoski I am creating a writing exercise in Storyline in which the user has to edit a paragraph that is 130 words down to 53 words. I would like to be able to calculate the number of words the user ended up using and display it back to them. Any ideas on how I could do this? the course has to run on html5 so a flash solution is not viable.
