Displays in real time the number of words, characters, and lines written in the text you're working on. Automatically detects and counts any text copied to your clipboard. Works with Microsoft Word and Notepad.

Text Tally is a small program provided for free by Harmony Hollow Software. The program aims at helping users to calculate how many lines, words and characters are in their texts and it can display these statistics on the main program's window. A useful feature that I liked is the ability to calculate the previous items on the fly while you are typing without the need to interrupt your writing or pressing any buttons. You may think that the program is useless, but it's very useful for article writers, magazine editors, webmasters and more. The program has a very easy-to-use interface that is suitable for both novice and experienced users. If you don't like to write your paragraphs on the simple text box of the program, don't worry because you can write on your favorite program such as Microsoft Word or Notepad and have the program automatically grab the text from the Windows clipboard. Luckily, the program supports words of all languages and special characters. For your convenience, the program has a functionality that enables you to minimize the program to the system tray area. The program contains a help file in ' Windows Help format' , which unfortunately is not viewable in Microsoft Windows Vista.
