    We showed this plugin to a faculty member and it doesn't provide the functionality they were expecting. They wanted to see a live update of the word count without having to press a button. Is that possible?

    You would have to poll the server on changes. It can't be done accurately from javascript because it depends on the php multibyte conversions etc.

    Updated to mark as compatible with all versions up to Moodle 3.2. There are no code changes.

    Watch out! For those who need an exact count, it seams as I the first word starting from the second line on don't get counted anymore:

    New version of the software has been produced in front of the stunts. This has been implemented for the formation of the better use of the top essay writers for all possible and vital terms for the humans in the shadow of the good and ideal paths for the people.
